2-Year-Old Amputee Learns to Walk, Will Melt Your Heart
Throw in equal parts heartwarming and inspiration and you have the ingredients for this incredible story.
Amputee Kayden Elijah, 2, is captured on video learning how to walk. He’s clearly (and rightfully) pleased because he keeps saying, “I got it!”
The New Jersey boy was born with omphalocele, a birth defect in which organs stick out of the body. Earlier this year, his right foot and left leg were amputated. Doctors had previously told his mother that Kayden would not live and she should consider aborting her pregnancy before he was born.
