DESPITE having both legs amputated in 2011, Lusiana Vakayatuyatu has not given up looking after her special boy — a physically disadvantaged 22-year-old.
She describes her baby, George Kelsall as the light of her life who has "kept her on her toes" despite her diabetic condition.
The brave woman who hails from Naduri Village in Macuata took George into her life when he was two years old.
Even without a wheelchair, she has managed to move around the house attending to her daily chores.
"He is my sister's son but I have treated him like my own and for all these years, George knows me as his mum.
"I am glad to be a part of his life," she said.
"I have my left leg and my right ankle amputated but that does not keep me to my bed.
"I am up early in the morning to prepare my son's breakfast, clean the house, do our washing, cook lunch and dinner and above all, make sure that my son is happy."
Cooking dinner and lunch would mean her stepping out of the house to light the fire.
"I would prepare everything and light the fire, put the pot over the cooking place but ask my cousins to lift the pot when the food is cooked.
"He was born with a condition that limited his mobility and when he was about three years old it was worse because he couldn't stand on his own."
She said last year, he started to feel weak whenever he walked around the village.
"Then one day, he could no longer crawl and stayed in bed and he has been in that condition since then," said Ms Vakayatuyatu.
