I might speak of my son once in a while, but I had to share everyone the article in todays' paper about him

Newspaper Article (http://www.readingeagle.com/re/sports/1382934.asp)

He really has coem a long way through the years. He is an amazing kid and I'm proud he's my stepson (though I never think of him that way - to me he is simply my son.)

What an impressive story! I never had much ideas about dyslexia and the article tells you very well what a handicap it is!
Way to go Tony- you can teach all of us:)

I read the article, it was good! Congrats to your son. It's always fun to be featured in the paper. I bet he thinks that's really cool.

What a great story! The fantasy author Piers Anthony is dyslexic. I've heard people who stutter can be helped by singing; it engages a different part of the brain for some reason. The Greek orator Demosthenes stuttered; it is said he would practice speaking over the roar of the sea with pebbles in his mouth!

Good luck to your son's future endeavors.

wooo boy, the phone has been ringing off the hook tonight (more so than usual ;) ) with people wanting to congratulate Tony on such a great article, and lots of peole commending him on being brave enough to expose his dyslexia in such a public way. He's such a great kid!

He must make both you and Grant so proud. :) What a heartwarming article that shows just how much your son, and others with dyslexia must overcome, and usually do when they set their minds to it. Tom Cruise I think also has it, and look how far he's gone! Not to mention the bank account! $$$$:eek: $$$$
Thanks for sharing Kim, and give that boy a hug (even if he doesn't want one:o ):D

You must be so proud!

But, sorry, I have to ask.....is this the same son that was being covered in litter the other day? ;) :D :p :D

I also thought it was a shame that your name wasn't mentioned at all, Kim. If I remember right, this kid's mother isn't much of a mother and by saying "parents" in the article, most people, if they don't know you and Grant, would assume it meant birth mother and if I remember right, she doesn't deserve credit for having such a great kid. I'm sure you are such a great influence on him and are partially responsible for his turn around. But then again....this is about him....so maybe I shouldn't have even brought this up.

You must be so proud! :D

That's such an inspiring story. Congratulations to your son, Kim. You must be so proud! :)

I can't open the story, either, Kim, but I'll check back, later! I know you are proud!!!

What a neat article...and a neat kid.

You are very right to be proud. :)
