Roman Dinkel, 2, was diagnosed with spina bifida, a defect in an embryo's developing spine, after an ultrasound at 20 weeks.
Despite the odds, his parents were determined to persevere.
On August 1, Whitney Dinkel posted a video on Facebook of her son walking for the first time, which has garnered over 23 million views.
Roman was so excited to show the family dog, Maggie, what he could do.
Whitney and her husband Adam said they have received non-stop messages.
"From random people telling us their story, you know, how they were depressed, or you know, how they were suicidal, or how they were going through these medical situations and to see that he influenced them in a positive way to change their mindset and change their view it's just so heartwarming. It feels like he just gave hope to so many people with a seven-second clip," Adam told CBS News.
