I know, I'm not worthy.
That hand picture is neat. Did you use a regular scanner? Why don't you scan your face too so we can finally see you.
Oh, you are too, worthy!

Can you imagine me trying to play the 10/9 with the proper fingering? Perhaps I really could do it if I worked on the stretching for a long time, but it seems impossible to me.
Small hands are not a detriment, by any means. Sometimes, quite the opposite! Within reason, there really isn't a proper fingering; it depends heavily on the individual and the piano. Don't try to stretch beyond your physiology , it's easy to injure yourself doing that.
Here's a score of the Beethoven sonata from the aforementioned recording.
