She’s the hero we all need.
A 3-year-old girl has gone from Supergirl to overnight superstar thanks to her epic school picture day outfit. Kaylieann Steinbach was told that she could pick her own clothes for the big close up, and it’s safe to say her choice was nothing short of super!
The adorable little girl’s father, Austin Steinbach, says: “On picture day at school she was given the choice of outfits, none of which were Supergirl. She walked up, looked over each of her choices, turned and said, ‘POOTERGIRL!’ And well, I couldn’t argue with that answer.”
Kaylieann is a superhero fan, and she has always loved Superman and Supergirl. Her father explains that she has profound hearing loss and cannot hear the letter “S”, so that’s why she calls them “Pooterman” and “Pootergirl.”
The little girl took her school picture back in September, and she even brought her Superman action figure along. Steinbach shared the epic portrait on Reddit this week, with the caption: “My daughter got to pick what she wore for her school pictures. Daddy approves”.
His post went viral, and the proud father has been flooded with supportive messages. He says: “The reaction and turnout from the deaf community is amazing. I still haven’t been able to get through all the messages of support and kind words people have sent me. I could never have imagined how much her picture could have touched so many.”
