An Illinois boy who was born with no feet and only one hand isn’t letting that stop him from achieving his dreams.
Nick Trotter is six years old. He was born in Ukraine with significant disabilities – only a left hand and no feet.
But little Nick was adopted at the age of 18 months by Chris and Mindy trotter.
And now, he refuses to let anything stand in his way.
Nick’s parents say he always finds a way to do what he wants to do — including baseball, swimming, and jiu jitsu.
But wrestling is really his thing.
He’s even on a team — the Macomb Little Bombers.
Nick is participating in tournaments and has already won twice.
“I feel like I am like a king,” said Nick Trotter, six-year-old wrestler. “I feel like I’m really good at wrestling.”
“That’s all he’s ever known,” said Chris Trotter, Nick’s father. “And there’s time he’s asked, you know, ‘how come I don’t have feet? how come I’m missing a hand?’ but he doesn’t let it bother him. He knows that he’s special and he knows he can do everything and nothing slows him down. Kids ask him all the time, ‘what happened?’ and he’ll say, ‘well God made me this way.’ He’s just an amazing kid.”
Nick just participated in his third wrestling tournament. This one was in Burlington, Iowa. He pinned all three of his opponents and won his bracket.
