This is just so amazing on so many different levels!
An inspirational new ad by Duracell tells the tale of Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman, who has been deaf since he was three years old!!
The pro footballer dealt with doubters throughout his entire career, and when he didn't get drafted in the 2012 NFL draft, it looked like his dreams of playing professional football had come to an end.
But Derrick overcame his disability and worked extra hard to make his dream a reality, and now he and his teammates are one win away from playing in the Super Bowl!
Seriously, if this doesn't convince you that anything is possible, we don't know what will!
Ch-ch-check out the inspirational ad (above)!

This is simply parenting at its finest!!
In addition to being a fantastic, world famous actor, Colin Farrell is a proud papa to two boys, one of whom suffers from a rare genetic disorder known as Angelman Syndrome.
Things don't always come easy to his 10-year-old son James due to his learning disability, and sometimes things as simple as watching a movie can be a difficult task.
However, the veteran actor says they are making HUGE progress, and he's been making an effort to introduce him and Henry to some of the classics:

WHOA!! That seems crazy dangerous!
A triple amputee and military veteran was on the show Gator Boys.
With their help, he got the opportunity to wrestle some alligators!
After just a little coaching, he literally was able to ride the gators!!
That seems so terrifying!
We gotta give this guy props for not letting his disability affect how he lives his life.
Even being half the size and weight of the gators, this brave man laid on top of the beasts and even opened their mouths.
This young man truly has no fear!!
Check out the video (above) to see him wrestle a gator!

Every child is different, so why are all toys the same?!?
Luckily, doll retailer, American Girl took notice of that dilemma and created dolls that share common characteristics with their owner!!
The brand's holiday Special Sparkle collection, which caters to children with disabilities, introduced a range of dollies that feature a wheelchair, a hearing aid, an allergy-free lunch set and a tiny service dog in a harness.
With the new line of dolls flying off the shelves, the company's spokeswoman Julie Parks said:
