This Denton, Texas kid may not look exactly like other three-year-old boys, but he’s still a fantastic big brother.
The birth defects that caused Camden Whiddon to be born without hands or legs have not stopped him from being helpful to his younger siblings, Ryleigh and baby Jaxton.
Camden’s mom, Katie, posted a video to her Instagram account of her extraordinary oldest son helping his baby brother. The adorable post quickly went viral.
“I think it’s funny that the video is getting so much attention,” Whiddon said to BuzzFeed. “I shared this video thinking that just some friends and family would think it was sweet. He takes care of Jaxton all of the time, so this is just a normal thing for us. When the video started getting in the millions we couldn’t help but laugh because it was the most simple video to us.”
Little Camden learns more and more ways every day to cope without the use of legs or hands.
“Camden STILL continues to blow me away with all of the things he is capable of,” Whiddon said. “Camden also helps me out with wiping Jaxton’s mouth and patting his butt when he needs to be soothed. Camden took care of Ryleigh the same way when she was a baby.”
Don’t feel sorry for little Camden, he may be different, but that won’t stop him. It didn’t stop motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, who has the same birth defects, yet travels the world giving speeches.
“Camden is one of the happiest kids I know!” Whiddon said of her son. “Camden is a brilliant and incredible kid and if everyone would take the time to give him a chance, then they would see just that.”
