Olathe boy walks, inspires millions

OLATHE, Kan. (CBS/KWCH) The story of a Johnson County two-year-old is inspiring millions of people and across the country.

Roman Dinkel was born with spina bifida and underwent surgery before he was born. Doctors said the point was to increase Roman's odds of walking after his birth.

His mom, Whitney, documents her son's life and journey with spina bifida on a Facebook page called 'Defying Odds: Roman's Journey'.

About a week ago, the Olathe mom posted a video showing some of her son's first steps.

It's since been played more than 23 million times.

CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor even chronicled Roman's story Wednesday night.
