The 7-year-old who lost part of her left leg in the Boston Marathon bombings is learning to use a new prosthetic leg, as her family continues to mourn four months after the April 15 attack that killed her brother.
The family of Jane Richard and the late 8-year-old Martin Richard said Thursday that Jane is already dancing on her prosthetic leg and "struts around on it with great pride."
Parents Bill and Denise Richard say Jane came home from a rehab hospital a few weeks ago. The family slept at home together for the first time since Martin's death.
The Boston couple also was hurt, but their 11-year-old son Henry wasn't injured in the explosions near the race's finish line.
The Richards say they are still coping with Martin's death and "even the sweetest moments can become heartbreaking."
