Zaydan was only 18 months old when he fell into an inground fire pit after his older brother scared him. He was burned all over both of his hands and arms with some burns on his leg. This led to a partial amputation of his pinky finger on his right hand.
Zaydan’s recovery went well. Now at the age of 5 he has begun questioning why he has a baby finger when no one else does. His mom states, “It’s hard to explain to a 5-year old what happened that day. Some people have it way worse, but it’s always nice to have other people to talk to about their burn injuries and realize that he is not the only one with burns.”
Zaydan has come a long way since his injury.
