Disabled Father Dances With Daughter For The First Time

Disabled Father Dances With Daughter For The First Time

Hearts are warming across the internet after a video of a teenager bursting into tears when she is finally able to dance with her dad for the first time has gone viral.

In the video, the disabled father struggled to his feet - using crutches - to share his daughter's first dance at her 18th birthday party.

Odet Belas works as a rubbish collector earning just 250 pesos (£3.50) a day but had been saving for the last two years to give his beloved daughter Rosalinda her dream birthday bash - it's moments like these that restore faith in humanity.

The fifty-year-old uses crutches to hobble around - when he's not riding on his waste collecting cart - after suffering with polio when he was a child which left him with very little use in his legs.

This disability wasn't going to hold Odet back - nothing was going to stop the father-of-one making it across the dancefloor to his daughter for her 'debut party' - the Filipino coming of age celebration.

The emotional moment was captured in Surigao City at the end of August.

Rosalinda said: ''This was the happiest moment of my life. I'm so lucky to have a father.

"We may not be the richest, but the struggles he has been through to give me a special day shows the power of love.''

The moment was wonderfully emotional, but not unique. Twenty years ago, following a tragic accident where he lost his son, Paul Martin was left quadriplegic and gave up dancing.

When his daughter got married, he realised his paralysed state couldn't get in the way of celebrating with her and he managed to get onto the dancefloor for the first time in almost 17 years.

His determination didn't stop there, Martin swore off travel along with dancing after the accident, but Brittany's wedding inspired him to buy tickets to Europe this summer.

He's also started taking dance classes.
