It's crazy how we take things like walking for granted. Every morning we wake up, place our two feet on the floor and head to our destination without thinking of the hundreds and thousands of steps we'll be taking that day. It's not until we come across stories like little Kayden Elijah Kinckle's plight that we realize how blessed we really are.
Kayden is a beautiful 2-year-old boy who was born with Omphalocele, a rare birth defect which caused him to be born with his organs outside of his body. On top of that, while still in his mother Nikki's womb, Kayden's feet became tangled with the umbilical cord and were pinned under his mother's pelvic bone. It led to Kayden being born with a deformity that required the little fighter to have both his legs amputated in January.
Now Kayden is learning how to walk with prosthetics.
His mom shared this emotional video of her 2-year-old taking his first steps with the help of a walker a few days ago. In the tear-jerking clip, Kayden nearly falls while still getting used to his prosthetics. But the little champion powers through, repeating "I got it! I got it!" as he carefully walks down the hall.
Watch it below:
You got it Kayden!!! So heartwarming!
Kayden's mom is currently raising $50,000 for the physical therapy session he'll continue to need. You can donate here.
