So sweet! A 10-year-old girl with a prosthetic leg cried tears of joy after receiving a special customized American Girl doll. Seriously, her reaction to her gift will melt your heart! Watch it here.
Ten-year-old, Emma Bennett didn’t know what to expect when she opened her new gift. Her mom and dad surprised the young girl, who has a prosthetic leg, with an American Girl doll that was customized to look just like her! And her reaction is priceless!
Aww! Emma’s little sister, who was sitting by her warned her that she was going to love the new present, but that was an understatement. Emma’s mom, Courtney Fletcher Bennett, caught the magical moment on camera, as her daughter began to open the present. “You got to be kidding me,” Emma yelled, before ripping through packaging and hugging the doll. She immediately burst into tears of joy. So cute!
Of course any kid would be excited to get a new toy, but this doll was specifically made with a special feature.”It’s got a leg like me!” she shouted. Emma, revealed that her new doll also had a pink leg that was designed just like hers. That just gave us chills. So sweet.
The young girl’s parents had reached out to the New York-based company, A Step Ahead Prosthetics to make modifications to the doll. “After she arrived, she was given a room to stay while her new leg was being made,” the letter inside the package read. Emma continued to hug the doll as her mom read the letter.
“She was fitted with a leg in her favorite color pink and started walking on it right away. After a few weeks of training to walk and run in her new prosthetic, she is ready to go home and live her life without limitations with you.” Emma began to cry again as she looked at the camera to say thank you. “Thank you for making a doll like me,” she said. How sweet!
It just goes to show how important being able to customize or make dolls that identify with every child can make a huge impact and change their lives.
