Nikki Valdez took to Instagram to celebrate her daughter Olivia Ysabelle, who suffers from the condition called limb difference which refers to the absence or malformation of one or more limbs present at birth, Pilipino News reported.
The actress also recounted how worried she was about her daughter's condition but reminded herself about their doctor's beautiful advice, "the best option is to change her diapers three times a day, feed her daily and give this child all the love and care in the world for what I see in front of me is a very smart and beautiful baby."
Nikki and her family showered Olivia with love and they treated her like a normal child and not someone with disability.
As of this post, Olivia is an incoming Grade 4 who goes to a regular school and also an achiever.
Nikki didn't allow her daughter's condition to prevent her from enjoying life and achieve or do things that she likes.
"APRIL is Limb Difference Awareness Month so allow me to celebrate my daughter. Olivia was born with Symbrachydactyly and I still vividly remember how worried I was for her but at the same time, her hand doctor’s words echoed in my heart saying, “the best option is to change her diapers three times a day, feed her daily and give this child all the love and care in the world for what I see in front of me is a very smart and beautiful baby.”
"That’s exactly what my family and I did. Today, Olivia is an incoming 4th grader in a regular school, an achiever in all that interests her, has learned how to do things with her baby hand, is a very active and cheerful little girl and continues to be the sunshine in our lives and all of you who have been following her thru my posts. May you grow up to reach for all that you dream of my love. We will be with you every step of the way and we love you soooooo much!!!! #MyOY #LimbDifferent #LimbDifferenceAwareness #LimbDifferenceAwarenessMonth #LuckyFin #LuckyFinProject"
