A girl gets a doll just like her – level 3

" it's got a leg like me!"

"Oh, do you love her?"

"I love you!"

Pure happiness at seeing a doll that looks just like her. This is the moment a Texan girl called Emma, who has a prosthetic leg, received a very special gift – and one that her parents had gone to a lot of hard work to get.

According to USA Today, they worked with A Step Ahead Prosthetics, who sent a letter to Emma telling her what journey her new doll had been on.

"’Emma's doll. Dear Emma… Wait. What? Oh! You, you, you got to be kidding me! No!"

"Well, show it to us."

"It's got a leg like me!"

"Oh, do you love her?"

"I love you!"

"’So, Mommy and Daddy had it sent off to this company, A Step Ahead Prosthetics.’ And so they said: ‘After she arrived... She was given a room to stay while her new leg was being made. She was fitted with a leg in her favourite colour, pink, and started walking on it right away. After a few weeks of training to walk and run in her new prosthetic, she is ready to go home and live her life without limitations with you.’"

Emma's parents filmed the happy moment and shared it on Facebook. It's now been viewed over 6 million times.

"Thank you!"

“Tell them thank you!”

"Thank you for making a doll like me." 

Difficult words: prosthetic (a body part made by people to replace a missing body part), journey (a long trip), fit (to make something to the correct size), limitations (things that make something hard to do).
