A heartwarming video is currently winning the hearts of everyone who sees it. The video shows a 7-year-old boy with Cerebral Palsy skating for the first time.
In the video, you can see 7-year-old Joao Vicente and his mother at a skate park near their house in Brazil.
The video shows Joao standing on a skateboard that is made especially for him.
The skateboard had a metal frame, which supports him, and it shows the kid well elevated from the ground.
Lau Patron, the mother of Joao, encouraged the little kid before skating across the park and over a skateboard ramp.
In the video, you can see Joao happy as his mother helped her skate.
The video was originally shared by Lau on her Instagram account earlier this year, but it went viral after it was shared on Twitter this month.
He has Cerebral Palsy and wanted to skate board so his mom created this for him so that he could.
MY HEART 😭❤

The video on Twitter currently has over 1 million likes, over 230 thousand retweets, and over 19 million views.
While posting the video on Instagram, Lau Patron, the mother of Joao, said, “My son is 7 years old. He is a boy full of wills, desires, dreams, and one of them was, for a long time, skateboarding.”
Lau also thanked Skate Anima for offering the special skateboard for Joao.
The skateboard was created by Skate Anima and was done through a project which was led by a physiotherapist and psychologist.
The skateboard makes sure that the disabled person using the board is safe.
Lau, the mother of Joao, said Joao deserves the world!
