For four-year-old Kenydii Parker, being able to walk seemed like a distant dream. But last month, the sweet preschooler took her first steps thanks to a new walker.

And she couldn't look happier!

Kenydii's aunt, Yvette Parker, captured the moment in a video and posted it to Facebook. The video has gone viral, with thousands of comments and hundreds of thousands of shares.

Yvette captioned the video saying,

"Today starts Day 2 come on my luv you got this#Never say never#GOD has the last word🙏🏾🙏🏾This is truly the happiest day of her life💯❤️#Spina Bifida"

As the young girl walks, her classmates can be seen and heard cheering her on in the back. Kenydii's infectious smile is wide on her face as she takes those first steps.

Kenydii was born with spina bifida, a condition where the spine and spinal cord don't properly form in. Because of this condition, she's had to rely on a wheelchair to get around.

But seeing her walk is absolutely stunning.

Kenydii's parents, Kenneth and Terry, found out she had spina bifida while Terry was still pregnant. Despite this, Kenydii has a bright and fun personality.

Spina bifida's incomplete closing of the vertebrae can lead to leg weakness, paralysis and orthopedic abnormalities, among other physical symptoms. The condition is one of the most common birth defects worldwide, though lower rates are observed in the United States.

Watching Kenydii move is enough to make you cry!

In an interview with People Magazine Kenneth said,

"The first time I saw the video, I was at work. It broke me down because everyone was cheering her on. Seeing her accomplish her main goal was a beautiful thing."

Kenydii's parents run an Instagram account for her to continue sharing her story. They often post photos and videos of the young girl practicing with her braces and walker.

And she's getting good!

I'd say "congratulations" are in order.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
