‘It’s got a leg like me!’ VIDEO captures little girl weeping FOR JOY over her new prosthetics-legged doll!

Nothing can be more gut-wrenching for a parent than to have to watch their child grow up with a major challenge like blindness, mental problems, or–as in this case–missing a leg. But one plucky ten year-old little girl just got a gift that’ll go a long way towards making her life a tiny bit better and her reaction to the gift caught on video will warm your heart.

As The Daily Mail reports, little Emma Bennet, from Cypress, Texas, who is missing her right leg, was thrilled when she opened her gift of an American Doll with a prosthetic leg just like hers!

From the Daily Mail:

A little girl from Texas cried tears of joy when her mom gave her a new American Girl doll — because it had a prosthetic leg, just like her.

Most fans of the pricey doll pick out mini-me’s for their toy chest, with matching skin tone, hair, eyes, and even accessories. But that was easier said than done for 10-year-old Emma from Cypruss, who is missing her right leg.

American Girl doesn’t make dolls with prosthetic limbs, so Emma’s mom Courtney Fletcher Bennett set out on a mission to have one made.

Courtney reached out to a company called A Step Ahead Prosthetics, which makes full-size prosthetics for people, not dolls. Though it was an unusual request, the thoughtful company temporarily got into the doll business to make a new leg just for Emma’s American Girl.

When it was finally ready and attached to the doll, Courtney set the camera rolling to record Emma’s reaction when she opened her gift.

In the video — which has now been shared nearly eight million times on Facebook — Emma’s little sister can be seen walking into the room with the box.

Emma is waiting in anticipation on the couch as her mom pushes forward and ottoman to use as a table. The youngster seems exciting to be getting a doll, though she doesn’t yet know there is a bigger surprise in store.

We see so much tawdry, nasty and mean stuff on the Internet. It’s nice to see something heartwarming, isn’t it?
