Creating a one-of-a-kind ‘minnie me doll,’ for her daughter, Courtney Fletcher Bennett captured every tiny detail…down to her 10-year-old’s pink prosthetic leg.
Filled with excitement, 10-year-old Emma sat down to open her birthday presents. The girl had set her sights on the popular American Girl Dolls often seen in magazines and friends’ houses. As soon as the wrapping paper came off, Emma squealed at the sight of the signature box.
You got to be kidding me,” Emma said before tearfully hugging the doll. “It’s got a leg like me!”
Almost instantly, the little girl burst into tears. Never in her wildest dreams had she expected such an extraordinary gift.
Emma’s mother, working with A Step Ahead Prosthetics, creating the one-of-a-kind doll. Courtney even included a personalized note, read aloud as Emma was unwrapping the brand new doll.
