Child With Cerebral Palsy Takes First Unaided Steps in Viral Video


Most of us may be at a point in our lives where not a lot of things are new to us anymore. For some of us, that’s absolutely fine, but for others, new things can mean new beginnings. It can mean new hope that’s been a long time coming. 


This is the case for a 6-year-old little angel with cerebral palsy who, in a viral video that has since been viewed over 36,000 times, showed off her amazing accomplishment: being able to walk on her own, unaided, from one end of the room to another. 


According to Yahoo Lifestyle, the mother, Lovely Janae, was so excited to see her daughter be able to walk “without the aid of her walker or leg braces.” Since the condition affects muscles and movement, people with cerebral palsy most often have mobility issues which make it difficult for them to get around.

This didn’t stop Janae’s strong, beautiful daughter, of course, who not only proved that all hope is not lost, but also inspired both her mother and many of us on the internet. Janae even encapsulated these feelings of joyous inspiration by saying: 


“My hero is not someone older than me, it’s my 6-year-old princess.” 


Initially, it was just Janae’s friends who were sharing the video on social media, happy, as they were, for their friend’s daughter. From there, many, many people were also able to see it and feel inspired. But no one is more impressed and proud than Janae. 


It has already been picked up by various video aggregation sites and news sites, but the views on the original video posted has amassed 58,000 likes, 6,000 comments, and 44,000 shares.

A user commented on the post to say that she felt really happy for Janae’s daughter, too, saying that it’s “the look on her face when she realized what she had done” that made them feel so proud of her. Others say they’ve even watched the clip more times than they were able to count as it was inspirational and adorable.
