Boy with one arm meets his favorite soccer player who also has only one arm!

All of us have our own heroes. No matter who we are or what we are, there is someone we admire. Someone who inspires us. Maybe it's your mother, maybe it's an actor or someone who has been successful in your dream job . But you like to think you have something in common with them. Something that could help you reach their level, to become like them. Well, that was exactly the case with this boy who met his soccer hero.

Joseph Tidd of Florida was born without his left forearm. Now that he is two years old, he has learned to live with one hand. Many simple tasks are much more difficult, but he has overcome all obstacles.

Her parents, Colleen and Miles Tidd, have created a supportive community to help him. It involved family, friends and, of course some role models. Carson Pickett, a soccer player, was one of those role models. Carson plays for Orlando Pride and, like Joseph, was born without her left forearm. But that didn't stop her from reaching to her dreams.

As soon as Joseph saw Carson play on television, she became his hero. However, things were only going to get better for Joseph. These two first met in April and Carson emphasized that "we have the same arm!" There was nothing more to say for Joseph. Then they shared a "blow" with their left limbs

Joseph couldn't help smiling. Since his first meeting, Joseph has seen Carson play several times, still sitting in the front row and always fist his favorite football player.
"Overall, the positive awareness that has spread has been phenomenal," said his mother. And finally, Carson has someone like him whom he can admire.
