CdA girl’s first steps go viral

Six-year-old Eden Nagle holds her mother’s hand as she prepares for kindergarten registration at Bryan Elementary School. Eden was born with a rare chromosomal defect discovered through genetic testing (so rare the condition doesn’t have a name). Her parents didn’t know if she’d ever walk. (SR photo: Kathy Plonka)

For many parents, the moments when a child reaches another milestone of development are notable but inevitable. For Michelle and Tim Nagle, those moments were massive. And until they happened – until their daughter Eden finally crawled at 2, walked on her own at 4 1/2 – the Coeur d’Alene parents weren’t sure they would. Whether Eden, now 6, would walk was just one unknown in a world of them after they learned she had a rare genetic condition. To share their joy in their daughter’s progress was one reason Michelle made a video documenting Eden’s milestones. Another was to offer encouragement to other people facing their own hurdles. But Michelle didn’t expect Eden to go viral/Adrian Rogers, SR. More here (including video link)
