"My heart is right here. It's outside of my chest and I really love my mom, she's always touching my heart because she likes it."
-Virsaviya to NBC Miami in 2015
Here is the story of the brave girl Virsaviya Borun, who was born with her heart outside of her chest. She is just like any other girl of her age. But what sets her apart is her strength to live with such a condition. We are simply smitten with her spirit, that has instilled the faith of self-love in us. She too loves to dance and to draw. She was born with Pentalogy of Cantrell, which is a rare disorder in which her heart and intestines reside outside her stomach. There are also some other body parts that are missing, such as the diaphragm, parts of the chest bones and some abdominal muscles.
The little girl lives with her mom, Dari Borun, in the USA, but they are originally from Russia.
Read on to know the story of the prodigy who is defying all odds.
But she is not intimidated by the deformity.
Gosh! Their confidence is contagious.
But they surely look out for support.
"Sometimes she feels like she is not good enough to be loved, sometimes she feels like she is so different from others that she said she has no purpose in this world, sometimes she cries ... but I encourage her and show her how people love the way she is, how much I love her
Dressing up and being all good-looking.
Rarely do kids her age possess as much strength.
Her mother is trying all that she can to take care of her little bundle of joy.
The caption reads...
"Happy New Year to everyone
Yes, she wants to breathe, without any hindrance.
They have set goals for us.
Most of all, she isn't ashamed of it.
Kudos to the mom of the little one for instilling such principles and faith in her.
When I'm getting dressed, I put soft clothes on to not hurt my heart.
I walk around, I jump, I fly, I run, I'm not supposed to run but I love running."
It is all just the way one sees and perceives them.
Gosh! I was completely stumped looking at this.
Revelling in the waves.
But no one wants to feel her pain.
Can't stop admiring her and her principles.
Totally in love with your strength, girl.
Keep it up!
Even you can contribute to her, here.
