The above picture is of my cousin Kevin. My Aunt Kyle on my mom’s side has two children she has adopted from China. Mei Ling is 13 and Kevin is 9…and they’re both super cool! Kevin was born with a birth defect on his right leg. Essentially his right foot grew where his knee should have been. Once he was adopted and in the States he received an essential surgery that amputated his right foot and was fitted for a prosthesis. Ever since he’s been a thriving, active kid with a great attitude.

He’s recently been involved in the Paralympics, primarily focusing in Track and Field. I’m told he excels at archery and has qualified for the National Games. Hearing about Kevin and seeing the pictures my aunt sends to friends and family make me so happy, so I thought I’d share!
