4 year old with Spina Bifida goes out for the first time as friends cheer her on [Video]


All children have dreams, and for four-year-old Kenydii Parker, that dream was walking.

Kenydii’s father, Kenneth Parker, told PEOPLE that she was born with spina bifida and used a wheelchair. But Kenydii was determined to make her dream come true and go. Her dad says she didn’t let anything discourage her, not even a leg surgery that left her in a cast for six weeks.

“Kenydii has the kind of spirit in which she’s going to do what she wants to do. She said almost every day that she will go no matter what,” says Kenneth.

“She said,” Dad, I’ll go! Dad i want to go “Even if she had the cast on her leg … she would jump off the couch. She has that determination in her. She never gives up.”

Her hard work and determination paid off, and she took her first steps with her classmates clapping and cheering. Kenydii smiled and laughed when the little children said, “Kenydii! Kenydii! “

Kenydii’s aunt, Yvette Parker, recorded the video and shared it on Facebook, where it was viewed 4.6 million times and shared more than 100,000 times.

“A class came out and saw them running and they started to root them!” Yvette tells PEOPLE. Yvette participated and can be heard in the video where Kenydii says, “Yay, girls! Look at you go! They cheer you! “

You can see more of Kenydii’s bright smile and bubbly personality on her Instagram page (@itsme_kenydii).
