Toddler Taking First Steps After Leg Amputation Says 'I Got It!' (VIDEO)

baby shoesBaby's first steps videos are constantly uploaded and shared with friends and family, but the latest -- of a toddler learning to walk -- will really melt your heart. Two-year-old Kayden Kinckle was born with omhalocele, a birth defect in which an infant's organs develop outside the body, and had a band wrapped around both his legs and feet. When he was just a baby, he had two abdominal surgeries, and earlier this year, doctors amputated his right foot and his left leg. And now with the help of a walker, Kayden has taken his first steps.

Grab your tissues and take a look at the video below:

Kayden's family has set up a fund to raise money for future medical expenses and to eventually send Kayden to a special summer camp. Now we can all take a lesson from his amazing enthusiasm and determination. Go Kayden!
