2-year-old learns to walk on prosthetics

2-Year-Old Learns to Walk On Prosthetics, Tells Mom 'I Got It!'

Kayden Kinckle is an inspirational 2-year-old. He's a double amputee who recently took his first steps using prosthetics.

He started out shakily, but soon began counting his steps and telling his mother repeatedly "'I got it!" The little cutie has been through far too much in his two short years on earth, but nothing has killed his happy demeanor and spirit.

While he was in the womb, doctors diagnosed him with a rare birth defect.

When Kayden was born, both of his legs were deformed due to his condition, as an amniotic band had wrapped around them while he was still developing.

In January of this year, surgeons amputated his right foot and left leg. Six months later, he's walking.

What a terrific little boy. He's got the kind of spirit most of us could afford to take a lesson from.
