Our Hero

"Being disabled doesn't have to be a disadvantage."- Oscar Pistorius

While he may have not won a medal in the Olympics (yet...he still has his relay coming up), Oscar Pistorius has won the hearts and respect of every amputee and their family and probably everyone else around the world. I can't express the amount of admiration, respect, and love we have for this man whom we have never met. He has shown the WORLD what is possible for ANYONE. He is truly an inspiration to so many. He has proven to us what we always believed with Dylan, that he could and WILL do great things with no limitations.

Some videos to check out:

  1. I just read the story of your little guy on another blog and had to come over and say hi. Our 14yo son, adopted at 20 months from Korea, was born with the same anomaly and now does everything any kid does. The pictures of your little guy and his first leg brought back memories of going through that with our son. We also really loved seeing Oscar Pistorius achieving at such a high level as a double amputee. Blessings to you and your family,
    Mary Ostyn, mom to many

  2. You are an AMAZING FAMILY!! officially you are in my heart and my prayers.
    love from Barcelona.
