Proud mum goes viral after sharing inspiring video of her disabled daughter.

Proud mother Elmira Knutzen shared footage on Facebook of her daughter Vasilina who was born with no arms but has learnt to feed herself using her feet.

Little Vasilina, from Russia, was born without arms but has persevered in her efforts to learn to eat on her own.

In the video, she grips the fork with her toes and, not without a considerable amount of effort, directs the fork to her mouth.

Since it was first posted on October 12, the video has gone viral online, with more than 1.4 million shares and 61.5 million views on Facebook alone.

One very determined little girl!

    Determination is such a good quality to have, it will bring her far. My disabled daughter has it well :)

  • Oh wow, so amazing! It’s quite incredible how the human body can adapt to different body issues. What a determined little baby


  • What an amazing little girl just goes to show that nothing can stop us if we have the determination.


  • Children with disabilities are often very determined to achieve skills than able bodied ones are. They often have hidden talents that aren’t always noticed and encouraged.


  • I’d probably kick myself in the head


  • Nothing can stop the human spirit.


  • Learning to feed herself with her feet! What a great achievement!! A very strong little girl!! :-)
