4 Years After This Boy Was Born Without Limbs, He Achieved A Feat That Was HeartWarming
Camden Whiddon was born without arms or legs, but the four-year-old did have plenty of determination. And with the cheers of his family ringing out all around him, he accomplished something that might have seemed impossible – until it actually happened.
Eighteen-year-old Texas resident Katie Whiddon found out that she was having a baby, and 18 weeks into her pregnancy, her doctor scanned her belly. The ultrasound revealed that her baby-to-be didn’t have arms or legs.
The doctor said that Katie’s unborn son had amelia-phocomelia, a condition that leaves a developing embryo without the usual number of limbs. As for Camden, he had tetra-amelia, which meant he had lost all four. In most cases, tetra-amelia is passed on by two parents who have the recessive gene who don’t have any outward indications that they’re carrying it.
Katie was understandably shaken by the diagnosis. “When I first found out he wouldn’t have arms or legs, I thought that he would just be a vegetable… I didn’t know what to expect,” the soon-to-be mother-of-four told People magazine.
On top of that, Katie worried that she wouldn’t be able to care for her baby – she was only a teenager herself, after all. “I had just turned 19, and I didn’t know, ‘Am I going to be able to be good enough for him?’” she admitted.
But her fears quickly subsided after Camden’s birth, as he showed his determination early on. “When he was around two months old, I had him laying on my bed,” Katie recalled. “I saw him out of the corner of my eye, and he was hitting the toys with his arms.”
That would be the beginning of her son’s many milestones, which would often elicit the same reaction from his doting mom. Remembering that time when she’d first seen him play, for instance, Katie said, “I started to cry. I was just so happy, and that confirmed that he was going to be able to do things.”
