This Video of a Girl Getting a Doll with a Prosthetic Leg Will Break Your Heart

It’s easy to survey the state of things as they are today and curdle with cynicism. The political climate has got all of us turning on one another, and losing our damn minds. But occasionally something comes along that reminds us of the innocence in the world. This video of Emma, a 100year-old girl from Texas, receiving a gift of an American Doll—one that, like her, is fitted with a prosthetic leg—is one such example.

The doll, as Buzzfeed notes, comes from A Step Ahead Prosthetics, a company that makes real prosthetic legs as well as those for dolls for kids like Emma.

Check out the video, below. “It’s got a leg like me,” Emma cries. You probably will too.
