We all get our share of joys and hardships along our journey through life. However, for some of us, life seems throws a bit too many challenges to deal with. One good way to look at it is viewing our struggles as an opportunity to shine brighter and emerge a Hero in our life. While most kids his age are literally exploding with energy, 4-year-old Camden Whiddon has been denied the very basic physical ability to run. Born without both his legs and the lower halves of his arms, Camden faces a lot of struggles. However, as his mother puts it, the little boy’s life challenges have not watered down his will to live and enjoy life to its fullest.
Not long ago, Camden learned to take his first few steps with the help of his dad. The boy’s mother Katie Whiddon expresses her joy in her Facebook post that goes, “I cried like a baby! I am SO proud of Camden and I am SO BLESSED to be his Momma! All I could do was cry and tell Camden how proud I was of him while watching him take his very first unassisted steps.” When asked by his mother whether he was proud of himself, Camden replied, “No, I’m just walking.” And as you might expect it, the mother became deeply emotional at witnessing her child’s humility and determination to live! Needless to say, the little guy is a fighter who is sure to go places in his life! More power to Camden!
