I've quoted Oscar Pistorius on the blog before. Ever since Dylan's diagnosis and doing some google searches, we came across Oscar Pistorius' story and he has become our inspiration and hero and I know he will be a role model in Dylan's life. He was born with the same condition as Dylan and is a double amputee because of it. I admire his parents and how they raised him to truly believe that he did not have a disability, that he was just different. But different is good! I really hope we can instill that in Dylan. Anyway, Oscar is a world record sprinter. He has won gold medals in the paralympics, as well as against able bodied athletes. He is currently trying to qualify for the London Summer Olympics. He's amazing! Check out this story Brian Williams did on him. You won't be disappointed, I promise.
