Emma, a 10-year old Texas girl, received a special gift that left her crying tears of joy. Emma was born with a rare birth defect and has used a prosthetic leg for most of her life.
With the help of a company called A Step Ahead Prosthetics, Emma’s parents made a unique American Girl doll with a prosthetic leg. Now Emma has a doll that is just like her.
A video of Emma receiving the doll has gone viral on the Internet.
The video captures Emma’s emotional reaction while receiving the gift. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” she exclaims while opening the box.
Emma breaks down in emotion, hugging the doll close to her chest as her laughter becomes tears of joy.
Emma holds the doll up to the camera. “It’s got a leg like me,” she says through tears. “I love you.”
