My mother-in-law is trying hand over a disabled person to someone

Good day. I am a mother of a 3 years old girl. Just like in the title, my mother-in-law is trying to hand over her disabled son. My husband’s brother has being using the wheelchair since middle school. He, as a 33 years old, is also working at a huge company that everyone recognizes just by the name and is envious of.Additionally, he is also a very kindhearted person. To some extent he walks and can freely do the house chores with his hands. Although physically inconvenienced, my brother-in-law, who has a very decent job, is capable of taking care of himself.

The problem is, my mother is pestering me to introduce him to someone physically okay. To be honest, this is very difficult. No matter how good his occupation is or perfect his personality is, he rides a wheelchair. If I bring up someone that rides a wheelchair to a woman without physically disability, it is so obvious how they would react, so I am torn. I am not saying that everything is perfect if one has no disability. I even introduced him to one of my friends, who works as a hairdresser, but she said that she wasn’t interested because he was one year older than her.

Seems like my brother-in-law is also stuck. He is fully aware of his place and seems to have made up his mind to live alone. However, my mother-in-law interferes and nags, so it must be hard for him too.

So what do you guys think I should do ? No matter how hard I rack my brain, I can’t come up with anything.
