Last night, watching Good Morning America (I DVR them and watch at night!)I saw an amazing man named Kevin Laue.
Kevin Laue is a 6 feet 10 inches tall college student and basketball player from Pleasanton California. He was born with one arm and has been recognized for his skills and success in overcoming adversity. Due to a restriction of prenatal blood circulation, Laue was born with a left arm that ended at the elbow. His parents encouraged him to play soccer as a child, but Kevin didn't like soccer. He also refused to use a prosthetic arm. He had some struggles as a youth basketball player, but by 8th he had grown enough that he could handle a ball with one hand and could dunk a basketball. In March 2009 he received a scholarship to play Division I basketball for Manhattan College.
This is exactly what happened to Landon, except Landon's arm was saved. I sat there watching Kevin's story amazed by his spirit and fighting tears because we are so lucky. I am going to show Landon this amazing video. See for yourself.

Isn't it nice to be reminded that no matter what you are dealing with in life, you can find the blessing in it?
