His face can make you melt, and his story will bring you to tears. When you hear him speak, you realize that this child has strength beyond his age because CP has robbed him of a normal childhood.
Background: Growing up with Cerebral Palsy has been challenging for Adam. Even getting out of bed every morning is a process. Because of his Cerebral Palsy, Adam doesn’t feel ordinary. His legs are very weak and he uses a walker or a wheelchair to get around. He knows that people look at him and think he is different.
At the Village: At the Village those feelings changed. He was able to just have fun with his family and make new friends. One of his favorite things was going down the zip line with his brother.
Adam says: “The Village gave me the courage to feel comfortable, not to be ashamed that I’m disabled and different. That feeling allows you to celebrate life.”
