Bethany Hamilton lost her arm in a shark attack but inspired people around the world by holding onto her faith in God and fulfilling her dream of becoming a pro-surfer.

Her amazing story was told in the hit movie, Soul Surfer, which starred AnnaSophia Robb.

Now this Soul Surfer has found her soul mate and she couldn’t be happier.

“One year ago today, I met an amazing man, now we will spend the rest of our lives together and I’m soo excited! I love you Adam!” she posted on her Facebook page.

Hamilton lost her arm while surfing near her home on Kauai, Hawaii, 10 years ago. Today she travels the world as a motivational speaker, sharing her faith and encouraging other shark attack survivors and amputees, as well as girls battling image and esteem issues.

Although Adam’s last name has not been provided, he is understood to be Adam Dirks.

Hamilton had this to say about him: “He is genuine, kind, fun, adventurous, easy going, friendly to all, passionate for Christ and just a great guy over all! …and he liked me too!”

She continued: “To be loved by another is beautiful. It took a bit of time for me to accept that. I’m not sure why. But I questioned: ‘Why would this man love me as much as he does?’ ‘How can he accept me, flaws and all?’ Not to mention, ‘Will he accept my unique life and come along side of me in support?’ ‘How can he love me and all that my life is made of?’ ‘Will he love me life-long?’ But I know Adam’s love for me is unique – it comes from Christ, and that he will love me forever.”
