Let’s start today with some motivation! This time from two-year-old amputee Kayden Elijah Kinckle.
This video of two-year-old Kayden learning to walk with a walker for the first time brought tears to my eyes. You see Kayden was born with a rare birth defect called Omphalocele, which caused him to be born with his organs outside of his body. To add to that condition while still in his mother’s womb, Kayden’s feet became tangled with his umbilical cord and were pinned under his mother’s pelvic bone, which caused him to be born with a deformity that led to him having both his legs amputated in January.
He’s been through so much in his short life! But now he’s learning to walk with prosthetics & a walker!
His mother Nikki shared a video of her baby taking his first steps a few days ago and his cheerfulness and positivity is so contagious! He fell a few times in the beginning but then he started saying “I got it, I got it” as he walked to meet his mom who was holding the camera!
