Wailuku, Hawaii – Three-year-old Rayden “Bubba” Kahae, was born without a right hand and  always wanted a prosthetic one like his favorite superhero Iron Man.

“Bubba was born with ABS, which is Amniotic Band Syndrome,” Rulan Waikiki, Rayden’s grandmother, told KTLA. “It’s where the baby’s hands end up without some fingers, some with none, couple little stumps instead of fingers.”

Rayden’s father captured the moment when the special delivery arrived and his son was able to hold his own hand for the first time.
