(WAVE) -- Stephanie Decker, the mother who lost both her legs earlier this year while shielding her children from a tornado, has been fitted with new prosthetics.

Cameras were rolling as Decker took her first step.

Decker lost her home and parts of both her legs when an EF4 tornado hit her hometown of Henryville, Indiana.

She says she is more than ready to take the next step and face whatever comes next in her recovery.

"To actually stand again is an overwhelming feeling," she said Wednesday.
