Disabled 2-Year Old Walks for First Time with Prosthetics: Pass the Tissues!

WARNING: You may wanna view the following video with a box of tissues by your side.

Actually... make it two boxes.

The footage features Kayden Kinckle, a two-year old born with a birth defect called Omphalocele, which entails one’s internal organs remaining outside one’s body.

When Kayden was born, his umbilical cord was tied around his legs and feet in the womb, which led to some deformities and a procedure that led to doctors amputating the toddler's right foot and left leg.

On July 4, with the help of a walker and prosthetics, Kayden took his first few steps, a miracle that his parents captured on film.

"This video is really more than first steps," mother Nikki says. "We celebrate his life as well and every step he takes will be to glorify God.

Pretty amazing stuff.
