Get ready to be inspired, and yes, tears are possible. But I promise, it’s worth it.
Doing things as simple as walking is something most of us don’t ever even think about. We’ve been doing it our entire lives. But when faced with the reality that it may not ever happen, or that it won’t happen normally, it’s a life-changer.
Especially when it involves a child.
Kayden Elijah was born with Omhalocele (where his organs were on the outside of his body) and also had a band wrap around his legs and feet while he was in the womb, which led to some deformities in his legs. In January he had to have his right foot and left leg amputated.
Last week Kayden — now 2 years old — was able to attempt to walk on his new prosthetic legs by himself with a walker.
Watch. You won’t regret it. And next time you think you can’t do something, let Kayden remind you of this: “I got it!”
