10-year-old Emma Bennett cried tears of joy when she received the most perfect American Girl doll. The doll shares the same prosthetic leg as Emma. Her mom posted a video on Facebook, of her reaction.  

Emma was born with a rare birth defect that required the amputation of her leg when she was just nine months old. As she grew up, she was fitted for a prosthetic leg and learned how to walk. Now, Emma is part of her school's cheerleading team and continues to prove that nothing will stop her. 

Her mother, Courtney Bennett told her local news station, KTRK-TV, that she knew Emma would be excited. Nobody expected Emma to have such an emotional reaction.
