Two Teens And Their Mama: Todd's First Step

Todd's First Step


For all of you that have been following along with our friend Todd's journey, I wanted to update you with great news.  This week he took his first step!  If you need to get caught up, I wrote about Todd here and here.

From the very beginning, Todd told everyone that he would walk again, and he's certainly making great strides towards that goal.  My husband was lucky enough to be there when Todd took his first step earlier this week, and he said it was emotional and amazing.

One of our local television stations did a piece about his journey.  In typical Todd fashion, he failed to mention to his wife that they were coming for an interview until ten minutes before they arrived.

Thank you to everyone who has sent prayers and good wishes to Todd.  He continues to be an inspiration to his family, friends, and thousands of strangers.  I can't wait to see what he does next!

This is the two minute piece that aired on King-5 TV.  If you'd like to just see him take his first step, below that is video from his Facebook page.
