Micah is Hamilton’s youngest son and was welcomed into the family in February 2021. “I’m raising our third son, so the tricks and adaptations are getting better with each child. When they are this young and have the wobbly head and need constant attention, nursing, diaper changes, tummy soothing, lots of sleep and of course smiles, kisses and more.” Hamilton wrote. 

Recently, Hamilton shared tricks for raising her kids, and it includes using her feet to change Micah’s diaper.

She added: “I use my feet to help with diaper changing, lots of pillows with nursing, a baby carrier throughout the day, and tricky styles of holding to keep baby’s head up. Sometimes it can get frustrating, but I gotta keep moving forward, have Lil breaks and keep it positive. Plus, I remember I’ve done it before. And as a family, we make it work!”

However, while surfing off the coast of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai in 2003, Hamilton was attacked by a shark. She lost an arm as well as 60% of the blood in her body. But despite the shortcoming, it didn’t affect her dreams, and indeed she competed professionally for four years in 2007.

On the other hand, Hamilton’s story became an inspiration to many, having written it in the book titled: “Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family and Fighting to Get Back on the Board.” Likewise, in 2010, Hamilton was the twentieth-ranked woman among surfers and had placed first in at least eight different surfing competitions in her career.
