Cody

6 of 18
Miraculously, Cody survived, but he still had a difficult journey ahead. When he was just 15 months old, both of Cody's legs needed to be amputated. "He was fitted with his first prosthesis when he was 18 months old," Tina says. "They did not think that he was going to walk in his first prosthetics right away, and on his second day, I think, or first day of therapy, he started walking."

Those weren't the only expectations Cody surpassed. "Cody has really done everything that they said he wouldn't do," Mike says. "He wasn't supposed to be able to walk. Well, he walks—he runs. He wasn't supposed to be able to talk, [because] he only has one vocal cord. He just goes on forever."
