Going through a difficult period in my life, I'm so often encouraged by my son. Despite a serious visual handicap, he attacks every challenge with an endless amount of joy and determination.

Climbing this stairs in Helsinki is a good illustration of his courage to overcome challenges and to survive the daily struggle.

Te iubesc!

This is very touching. I highly applaud his determination but I also give you a lot of credit for instilling that determination, courage, and independence in him.
