Disabled Parrot “Flies” Again With A Little Help From Her Human Mom.

A woman smiles wide as she holds her disabled parrot, Mya, who is flapping her wings.

When we love someone, we do whatever it is that we can to help them out. For Kristen Suarez and her wife, Mariana, that includes their beloved pet bird, Mya. At birth, this sweet bird found herself in a tragic incident. This left her unable to fly — but that hasn’t stopped this disabled parrot from trying!

Still, no amount of trying will make it to where Mya can ever fly again… at least not on her own. One day, while Kristen was playing with their bird, she noticed something interesting.

A woman's mouth is agape as she holds up her disabled parrot inside of her home.

Kristen ran around the living room as she held Mya. As she did this, Mya began to flap her wings. Not only that, but she seemed to have a blast while doing it!

“She loves when we take her flying,” the couple shares. “And at the end of the [flight], she always laughs out loud.”

Kristen and Mariana share all kinds of adorable moments with Mya online. But there’s one in particular that’s caught a lot of people’s attention. In it, we can see Mariana running around outside. Meanwhile, Mya flaps away, having the time of her life.

A woman smiles softly as she cradles her disabled parrot to her chest.

Although this disabled bird will never be able to fly like normal, thanks to her loving and caring human moms, she still gets to enjoy the incomparable feeling of the wind in her wings!
