This is my oldest son, Uriah. As many of you know, Uriah was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (commonly known as Brittle Bone Disorder). He was born with several healed fractures and the odds had been stacked against him from 19 weeks gestation. He’s now entering the 2nd grade and shutting down the naysayers, one by one. We were a homeschool family for a few years and we LOVED it. This was Uriah’s first year in any educational setting outside of the home. The biggest challenge that I faced as his teacher was teaching him to read. Not because he was having difficulty, but because teaching someone to read when you already know how to yourself is difficult! The English language has fifty-eleven rules that make absolutely no sense when you CAN read…so imagine the frustration when you’re trying to teach someone who can’t?! Lots of tears were shed and I doubted my ability more times than ever. I share this video to encourage you to keep pouring. .
.
While your kids are home this summer, get into the routine of spending time with them and showing them a partnership; when they benefit from knowing that you shed tears and “can do it” attitude as much as their teachers do throughout the year, they know that you stand in support of them and the effort their teacher puts in. .
.
Other kids remind Uriah often of the things that he “can’t” do because of his size, but we try to instill in him and build his spirit to be confident that his ability to read and speak well, will take him as far or further than any physical attribute alone ever could. Your kid may not be the most athletic or best looking or wear the best clothes, but a strong mind and willingness to be a good person is the key to a successful life. It starts at home and spreads to every person that they touch. Keep pouring into your kids and see the fruits of your labor

    Uraiah is the name of a mighty soldier that was one of only 37 closest soldiers to King David in Israel [2 Samuel 23:39]. These were the most valient of all in the kingdom. You have been named well, you have fought hard to live & be strong. May God bless you all the days of your life. May you also become a great leader, true to your Creator & valient in His will for your life. 😃🙏🇺🇸

    My son has OI and he is a genius like Uriah. We should connect and hopefully they will strike a long lasting friendship. My son is 5 years old and in Kindergarten. Hope to hear from you. Happy you shared Uriah’s story. He is an inspiration for us all.
