For anyone, having a limb amputated is devastating. And it’s not only heartbreaking for the person having the amputation, it is also hard on the family as well.

Baby Sol was born in March of 2015. Everything seemed to be well for the baby boy. Then, at just 10 days old, he had an unexpected clot in his arm, resulting in amputation.

Sol’s father, Ben Ryan, was heartbroken for his son. He was told that arms with sensor technology are not available for children until they are around 3-4 years old. But he wanted one for Sol quicker than that.

Unsatisfied with the ‘cumbersome’ options available for the babies, Mr. Ryan, a psychology teacher, decided that if doctors can’t give their son what he needs, then he will do it himself.

For days on end, Ben would lock himself away in their shed, learning biotechnology, so he would be able to create the perfect bionic arm for his son. He even quit his job to accomplish the task.

“He was in his shed at the bottom of the garden and I wouldn’t see him for days. To be perfectly honest, I thought he was going a little mad,” said Ben’s wife, Kate.

So far, Ben has made 2 versions, since his son continues to grow. He is working on the third one, and said, “…the next one I made will be better.”

But he isn’t stopping there. He wants to try and help amputee babies around the world. He has even created a crowdfunding page to help!

“My aim through Ambionics is to help children everywhere adopt and continue to use prosthetics through until adulthood,” he wrote on the page.

Even though he had no previous knowledge on biotechnology, he taught himself enough to create something that will be helping children everywhere!

We are so proud of this dad. What he has done for his son is absolutely incredible! And just knowing that will be growing into something even bigger, is just so incredible!

If you are proud of this dad and all that he has accomplished, then SHARE this post!

    Wow! I admire fathers like this! So full of positivity and faith. When baby Sol grows, I believe what he has been through will not be a hindrance to what he wants himself to be. He will surely achieve his dreams, plan and ambition.
