A four-year-old girl with cerebral palsy has taken her first steps, and her mum videoed the big moment!
And little Maya, affectionately dubbed "Mighty Miss Maya" by her family, is so happy her face beams as she manages her first few steps!
Maya was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one. She learned to walk by using a walker, but then underwent a major spinal operation in May and doctors told her it could take up to a year to learn to walk un-aided.
But this video shows the exact moment Maya walked on her own just seven weeks after her surgery. ‘I can do it,’ says a delighted Maya. ‘I’m walking!’
The video was posted this week on the family's Instagram account, Mighty Miss Maya, with the caption "4 years, 10 months. I can't even put into words how we are feeling. Nothing seems to fit the enormity of this moment for us."
Congratulations Maya! Blub!
