Tearjerker alert: You better grab the Kleenex for this one.
10-year-old Emma Bennett of Texas recently received a gift so fantastic that it triggered an unbelievable emotional reaction that has been shared among millions of others who have seen the video.
Emma, like so many other girls, was thrilled to receive an American Girl doll in her likeness. But what she didn’t know is how special the doll really was, because it was custom-made to be exactly like her – with blonde hair, a beautiful smile and a prosthetic leg.
Emma opened the box and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s got a leg like me! I love you!” She then sobbed uncontrollably while hugging her new doll.
Emma’s mom purchased the doll and shipped it off to a A Step Ahead Prosthetics, which builds artificial limbs for humans. But in this case, they were happy to fit a doll with one.
After they were done, they shipped the Emma doll back along with a letter that read, “After she arrived, she was given a room to stay while her new leg was being made in her favorite color pink. After a few weeks of training, she is ready to go home and lead a life without limitations with you.”
