2-Year-Old Double Amputee Learns To Walk While Exclaiming ‘I Got It!’ [Video]
Get your tissues ready – you’re gonna need them after watching this short video of little Kayden Kinckle. He’s a double amputee, but he’s totally mastering this whole walking thing.
In the video, Kayden takes his first steps ever using a walker. Both his right foot and left leg had to be amputated, and his pure joy at being able to walk is contagious.
This whole video is adorable, but it’s around 1:03 where it hits the top of the cuteness scale.
According to his mom Nikki, Kayden was born with an omphalocele, which a type of hernia that sometimes leaves organs to grow outside the baby’s navel. Kayden’s omphalocele wasn’t as large as doctors originally predicted, but a band wrapped around his legs and led to deformities that made it necessary to amputate.
