...You know Sonrise is filled with positive music every week, but sometimes we come across something so positive outside of music, we just want to share it with you to inspire you. First, imagine being born without arms. Now, imagine having a child without arms. It’s a reality for a mom and son in Illinois. Linda and Timmy Bannon have a rare condition that affects about 1 in 1,000,000 people. It caused them to be born without arms, but they’re living a life without limits. See more of their inspiring story here.
