On June 1st, 2016, 10-year-old, Emma Bennett, was handed a pink box. Inside the box, laid a very special present. In fact, the present was so special that it sent Emma into tears and their home video into viralness.
.The box contained an American Girl doll with a special modification. Like Emma herself, the doll had a pink prosthetic right leg. When little Emma first saw this, she became overwhelmed with feelings of joy.
This was the first time that Emma saw a toy that looked like her. While crying, she loudly proclaimed “It’s got a leg like me”! At that moment, you can’t help but tear up right alongside Emma as she embraces the doll.
Her mother, Courtney Fletcher Bennett, made all of this possible by contacting A Step Ahead Prosthetics. According to their website, this doll customization service is provided free of charge to little girls with limb loss.
“We feel that it is absolutely crucial to boost the self-confidence, self-esteem, and feelings of inclusion for little girls with limb loss, and that something as small as a doll that resembles them can have a profound effect on their mental and physical well-being” – A Step Ahead
