This is going to be an uncharacteristic departure for me. This story is deeply personal, for our family, and for our oldest son in particular. But it is a story he’s letting me tell, because it is a story he wants people to hear.


It's a touching story, but I really wonder how they came up with that title - I know it's a recurring motif in the post, but it really doesn't tell me anything about the content. Am I going to read a story about sports? Perseverance? Is this a self-help article? Nah.

What I read was a nice story about a kid with problems who moved to Costa Rica, adopted a dog and started feeling better about himself, moved to Indianapolis, almost lost the dog due to a car accident, and then had his dog rescued by an NFL player.

At least it's a nice story! I just wish the title did more to get people interested :)
