The Big Hearted Man Who Says I'll Be Your New Finger!


Libby and Matt's story on Buzzfeed affected us all. Matt inspired us all by giving his full support to his wife after she lost her little finger. He taught us what love is again.

Matt: ''I will be your new little finger.''👏🏼👏🏼


Matt and Libby are a happy couple with 5 kids.

Libby says they got married 6 years ago after flirting for a while and notes that it was love at first sight.

The Sanders couple says they laugh all day long and look after the 5 kids, who are 18, 14, 12, 8, and 4 years old.

Their friends say their love is ''super sweet love'' and we think this proves a lot. Matt changed the ice cream shop's name after marrying Libby 😳

Libby's taste 😍

Libby had a horrible accident in February and had her little finger stuck in the swatter. Doctors tried to save her finger, but had to amputate in the end.

Libby was a positive person and she wouldn't let her missing finger get in the way of her motivation.

But trying to have the life she had without the finger was not always possible.

Libby describes this experience as ''a little rough''


Matt found a way to make his wife feel good again. Libby can put nail polish on her 9 fingers and Matt offers his own finger as the 10th one.

Libby added this photo on facebook and added this note:

This is who I married....
I was painting my nails and made a comment that I forget I don't have to paint my pinky nail on my left hand. I simply forget that I lost my pinky, but it is always kind of a bummer when I am reminded. Matt said "I will be your surrogate pinky. You can paint my pinky to match your nails for the rest of our lives" 
And so we did....
I cannot image a sweeter, kinder man. No words adequately describe our love.

Matt sees this as: "This is about being us. It's more than a thought."

This photograph was shared by thousands. Many people commented that this couple was truly inspiring.

The couple said they were really happy after the photo got shared and they received messages.

Libby says she was really touched when she got in contact with people who had their body parts cut and adds she had never imagined being in a love story like this.


We hope this couple's story inspires everyone😊
