2-year-old Kayden Elijah Kinckle was born with an omphalocele, a defect in his intestinal wall that caused his intestines and other organs to stick out through his navel. He also had "a band wrap around his legs and feet when he was in the womb," his mom writes, which led to the amputation of his right foot and left leg.

Doctors told his mom he wouldn't survive, but now Kayden is old enough to learn how to walk. Here, he takes his first unassisted steps with his new walker—and even though it's difficult and he starts to slip, he won't give up.

"I got this! I got it, I got it!"


Hold on to that attitude, kid. You've got a lot more walking ahead of you.
