Despite being in a wheelchair, this dad has been working all year long to make the best handmade gift for his daughters.
Love is a really special feeling and makes people go out of their way to ensure their loved ones deserve all the pampering and appreciation they deserve. No barrier is strong enough to withhold love and Instagram dad @thewheelchairdad proved just that when he did the most wholesome and hard-working gesture despite his paralysis. The dad’s love and persistence to give his daughters the facilities they deserve is a wholesome feeling and everyone is just applauding the man's determination. The video captured the journey of the dad who was in a wheelchair yet planning to build something for his kids.
The caption revealed, “Dad was paralyzed while building a home. He is still an incredible builder!” The video captured the dad in his wheelchair with the hand-drawn blueprint of what he was to build followed by several glimpses of him at work doing everything by himself. Right from sawing and smoothing the wood to moving the big chunks of wood around and even placing them onto the wall, the dad proudly does his best. He is even captured getting out of his wheelchair as much as possible to reach out for tools and to get the job done. “We designed this built-in bunk bed/playhouse about a year ago and it has been an absolute labor of love this year!” the caption revealed.
The year-long ongoing project was something the family was excited to finish and the dad’s eagerness and willingness throughout did not disappoint. Despite being in a wheelchair, he makes efforts to get out of the chair by himself and with the help of his hands, climb ladders, fix the various parts of the bunk beds, drill holes and whatnot. He was a proper handyman and worked and without the explanation, one would never be able to tell that his wheelchair was a barrier in the first place. The way the dad moved and his enthusiasm throughout were enough to give away how much he loved his daughters.
The caption further mentioned that there was a need to fast-forward the progress on the room and the dad happily obliged. “Dan has been working tirelessly in between all of the other craziness he’s dealing with and yesterday it was finished enough to put their mattresses in temporarily,” the caption read. As the video continued, it was spectacular to see the dad go leaving no room for his paralysis to disturb. In one of the shots, he is also seen kneeling and bending to hammer a nail into the wall and complete his work. This dad looks determined to do whatever it takes to give his daughters the gift they deserve.
“They were so excited! What an incredible gift their daddy is giving them! Not only a dream bedroom but the priceless lessons he is teaching them along the way! As they were going to sleep last night, they both said, ‘Thank you Daddy and Mommy for our bedroom!’” the caption explained. The dad completely ditched his wheelchair to make his daughters' dream bedroom. Right from the first piece of wood to the finishing touches, the dad was energetically in on everything. @digisignia said, “That is not only impressive, it's incredible and heartwarming! What a man!” @mariatorquato67 said, “My son was born paralyzed from the waist down. What an inspiration you are.”
