Ireland Nugent takes her first steps on her prosthetic legs at POA! Our photos and WESH News Video/Article, 6/17/2013

There was not a dry eye in the house as Ireland took her first steps on her new prosthetic legs.  The first thing she asked Stan was, “I’m going to take my legs home?” ♥ How could he say no? Ireland left wearing the check sockets which were generously decorated with Dora the Explorer stickers (Stan’s great idea!!!). Tomorrow she will receive her laminated sockets; one with a Dora design and the other with a Minnie Mouse theme.    WESH News Orlando Feature on Ireland Nugent’s First Steps
