An 18-month-old boy from Haiti known as "Baby Charli" recently took his first steps on his new prosthetic limbs. The young boy was born without fully developed limbs and while most kids might not be so lucky, Baby Charli got the chance of a lifetime. According to a video report by GeoBeats, Baby Charli was brought to America by the group "Angel Missions Haiti."

Charli was brought to a facility in Virginia where he was fitted with prosthetic arms and legs. Professionals at the facility spent hours working with the adorable toddler and preparing him for his very first steps. Charli first got his new arms and he started grabbing things, balancing, and pulling himself up. A couple of weeks ago, Charli got his legs.

While he's still getting used to his new limbs, Charli he is standing and moving around. In a couple of weeks, he will be going back to Haiti a new boy! The video above is totally worth the watch -- Charli is the cutest thing!
