Child Takes First Steps

Girl Who Was Told She Would Never Walk Proves Doctors Wrong

There's nothing more monumental than when a child walks for the first time, but for Eden Nagle, those first steps were extraspecial. As a baby, Eden was diagnosed with a chromosomal deletion that doctors said would make it difficult — if not impossible — for her to walk. Four years later, Eden took her first slightly wobbly steps. Her mother, Michelle, captured the moment — and several others — to create a video that's sure to bring tears to your eyes. Grab the tissues and watch!
