I adopted my son Beckham from Bulgaria when he was 4 1/2 years old. He was born with agenesis of the corpus callosum (missing the middle part of his brain), along with other neuro issues. He has a hard time socially since he doesn’t recognize social or facial cues. My husband Lance and I decided to get involved with Special Olympics, so we could see if it’s something we wanted our son to do when he turns 8. We have made so many amazing connections and relationships through coaching. We have been able to see what Beckham's future will look like. He will belong, have friends, and have self confidence. All things we weren’t sure he would have before we found this amazing community of people. With Beckham having 5 siblings that all do sports, I’m so extremely thankful that he will also have something that he takes pride in doing.
