Encouraging himself to keep walking, Kayden says over and over, "I got it...I got it!"
"I got it...I got it!"
With those words, little Kayden Kinckle has become a social media sensation. A video showing the young boy taking his first steps using a prosthetic leg is quickly going viral.
According to Kayden's Facebook page, he was born with his organs on the outside of his body, and doctor's held a grim prognosis for his future.
"He said I would never survive the surgery. His words [to my mom] were to abort and try again," a passage on the page reads.
After a series of complicated operations, little Kayden had his right leg amputated, as well as his foot.
A heartwarming video of Kayden walking for the first time with the aid of a prosthetic leg and a walker has set the internet ablaze: stars like Michael Vick and Ellen DeGeneres have shared his story, and the video has racked up over 94,000 views on YouTube.
What's so moving about the video is Kayden's cheerful attitude and the way he encourages himself to push onward. He gets off to a rough start, but keeps going, saying over and over, "I got it...I got it!"
