I’ve ever done and for that I am very grateful.

Her name was Anna. She was having (this is not the technical term for it) a meltdown.Beautiful in her bold, satiny Royal Blue cap and gown, wheat blond hair brushed smooth, blue eyes pooling with tears and a look of sheer terror settling onto her face.
As I stood up to speak and looked into the faces of these extraordinary seniors ready to graduate, I looked down into my open binder, glanced back up again, this time at the student’s parents, siblings, and glancing at the staff and teachers, I closed my binder. I knew in that moment what they needed most was for me to share my story and the parts of the journey that they might most identify with.

As Ben mounted the back of Shadow we heard the amazing story of how Shadow the Arabian nearly lost his life when Guy first found him. He truly is a miracle. He lived and was never “supposed” too after a horrible entanglement with barbed wire. Since his recovery was nothing short of miraculous, Guy considers him an “overcomer” and loves to team him up with special individuals who are also overcomers. Ben, my son is indeed fits that bill. He has overcome countless challenges that come along with a diagnosis of autism, and continues to break through barriers as he learns new language, social skills and academic skills each month!
