Charlie Rousseau grew up feeling like a normal child and didn’t realize she was disabled until she was a teenager when her mother told her she was born with her disabilities because she had tried to have an abortion, but it went wrong. Thankfully, she isn’t letting her shortcomings get her down and instead has spent the last few years traveling the world.
The 25-Year-Old admitted her parents were very much determined to raise her like every other one of her school friends; hence she saw herself like every other child.
She said of having a relationship: “When boys tried to kiss me they had to bend down, I genuinely used to think will I ever have a boyfriend?”
The radio host explained that a doctor had allegedly told her parents to keep the baby even though the abortion process wasn’t concluded. She added: “They could’ve taken it further, they could’ve taken the hospital to court but we are living in a small town and my parents didn’t want to make a big deal.”
When Charlie made it into college, it was there she built her confidence and decided she would have a boyfriend and love, and people would love her.
From then, she decided to travel the world and experience other opportunities. So far, she has visited Mexico, Australia, Ibiza, and Portugal.
On the other hand, Charlie has never looked into surgery but has been given prosthetic legs. Sometimes she prefers to use her own two legs.
