Today is MOTH Monday on Good News Network: In partnership with The Moth, a nonprofit dedicated to the art of storytelling, we bring you the most uplifting speakers from live stages across the world.
Due to a congenital condition, Mary Theresa Archbold has spent her entire life without her left arm. Even with a prosthetic, she spent years of her life despairing and worrying about how she could appear “normal” to the rest of the world.
Despite managing to get through dance classes and college dorm life with her prosthetic, her final test came after she gave birth to her son.
She wanted to appear “normal” to her newborn child, but when she was faced with the task of giving him a bath without her prosthetic, they both started to cry – and that’s when she found the consolation she needed to overcome her fear.
Listen to her story below…
The Moth gives people an opportunity to tell a true story in front of a live audience, and sometimes their stories are chosen to air on the radio show, now celebrating its tenth year, and broadcasting on 485+ public radio stations—and on The Moth podcast, which is downloaded over 52 million times a year.
The Moth’s third book, Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible will be published in March 2019 and is available for pre-order from your favorite bookseller now.
