Paisley is like most 4 year olds.

A bundle of energy that can light up a room with her smile.

But there’s something a little different about Paisley.

Paisley is limb different. She was born with only one hand.

“People are born different. Everybody’s different in some way. Some of them you can see on the outside and some of them can’t. And I really want to bring awareness to what people say. It’s shocking sometimes what people will say to us,” says Katie Wyman, Paisley’s mother.

Surprised by some of the comments she heard, Wyman decided to write a book to teach kindness and acceptance.

The title of the book is “You Don’t Need 10”.

And Paisley proves it. She can do with one hand what most people need two to do.

“I want people to see her and not just see her arm. I want them to look past that and see her personality,” says Wyman.

And Paisley has plenty of personality to see.

Wyman has found support on social media from other parents going through similar experiences.

“I find comfort in there’s other people just like us,” Wyman says.

Wyman hopes sharing her story will bring comfort to others too and show the world that it’s ok to be different.

Wyman’s book, “You Don’t Need 10” is currently on sale online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can also purchase it at Books on Broadway in Williston.
