CYPRESS, Texas – A Cypress family captured a special moment on camera and it is now going viral.

The video shows a girl getting a gift she will never forget.

Emma, 10, has a prosthetic leg; and now, she has a doll that has one, too.

The American Girl doll was modified to have a pink prosthetic right leg.

The doll was created after Emma's parents reached out to a New York-based prosthetics company to make the modifications.

Courtney Fletcher Bennett recorded the moment her daughter opened the gift.

Tears of JOY!:)... A Step Ahead Prosthetics ... Thank you!

"You got to be kidding me,'' Emma said before tearfully hugging the doll. "It's got a leg like me!"

The doll came with a letter that Bennett read aloud to Emma. "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,'' read Bennett.

The video ends with Emma’s heartfelt words of gratitude as she cried tears of joy: “Thank you for making a doll like me.”
