"It's got a leg like me!"
A 10-year-old girl named Emma from Cypress, Texas, was recently surprised with the doll of her dreams, thanks to her parents and a company called A Step Ahead Prosthetics.
The American Girl Doll was outfitted with a prosthetic leg, just like the one Emma has. Emma's mother, Courtney Fletcher Bennett, posted a clip of the doll's unboxing to Facebook, which has since received over 7 million views at the time of writing since being uploaded Wednesday.
Emma had no clue the doll was fitted with a prosthetic leg until she read the letter inside the box. But when she did find out she was overcome with joy.
"You gotta be kidding me," Emma said excitedly as she rips the doll out of the package. Emma then burst into tears as she hugs the doll.
"It's got a leg like me," Emma yells as she held the doll. "I love you."
A Step Ahead Prosthetics explains on its website that they do not charge families for customized prosthetic legs for dolls.
