A Teenager and His Basketball

January 30, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
This is my 18 year old son, who is a high school senior.  In the Elizabeth Halford workshop that I am taking, on "Shooting Children", our homework was to do a stylized sort of shoot, using props, and bringing out the personalities of our children.

My son is a heart and stroke patient.  He was born with half a heart and had 5 strokes at the age of 2-1/2.  The strokes paralyzed his right side, took his speech and hearing, and took most of his cognitive abilities.  We truly believe that God has a very special purpose for Caleb.  He has diligently tried out for the high school basketball team since he was a freshman, and has been disappointed each time, because he was not chosen.  But this year, things were a little different.  All the guys who made the team asked him to be the team manager.  How cool is that??!!  So, he is the  manager for the freshman, JV, and Varsity teams, and he LOVES it, just as much as he loves basketball.  We are so proud of him, and can really see how God is working in his life.
