Two Daughters are Raised by Dad Without Arms and Legs After Their Mother Abandoned Them As Babies

A father’s heart was broken when the woman he loved gave up on him and his kids. He looked after his daughters to the best of his ability. He was not able to raise his daughters the way they deserve, despite his limitations. 

Love, loyalty, and a sense of communal support — these values are unfortunately scarce within our current society. 

However, this does not mean that people who believe in these values are not out there. They are far more numerous than we realize. In fact, their influence pours down into every generation.

As he grew older and faced more hurdles beyond his disability, Ignacia remained solid in her support and care. 

Acuña lives his life in a wheelchair, relying on others to move him around. But, He has the beautiful spirit of his mother. A smile remains on his face no matter what.

This smile remained even when the woman who gave birth to his two daughters walked out the door, never returning.

Because of this love for her father and her grandmother’s slowly growing inability to look after him, she returned from her new life in Argentina to look after him. She

“My dad is my world. He is my friend… he is the best dad in the world. That’s why I left my life in Argentina and came to stay. To be able to take care of him because, my grandmother can no longer do it because she is already old.”

Once again, the spirit of support, strength, and unconditional love has traveled down to another family member.

This strength of character is due to her father who has not only persevered but has also done so with an endless positive attitude.

Acuña and his family deeply love one another, and their actions reflect this. This familial love was also embodied by one grandfather.

He did everything possible to make sure his grandchildren had full stomachs before they went to bed. Grandfather Don Armando, who resides in Guadeloupe, Mexico, has a knack for art. 

This gift allows him to sell his drawings on the streets to help his family — something that no senior should have to do. One occasion saw him selling his drawings on the street.He was almost in tears and struggling.. Don Armando was in desperate need of milk for his grandkids.

But luckily, Hector Villanueva came across him, filming the interaction and sharing it on Facebook. Villanueva bought all his Virgin of Guadalupe drawings, leaving the elderly man sobbing. 

Family — whether it be moms, dads, grandmothers, grandfathers, daughters, and more — is a source of untouchable love and strength. Let’s remember to cherish them.
