~The real mother and adopted son from the movie The Blind Side. Love that movie! Good quote! So true :) #adoption Adoption or a family that you have created through friends


Michael Oher was Fostered/ Homeless/ Adopted. He was born one of 12; his Mum was an alcohol and crack-cocaine addict, whilst his Dad was frequently in prison. He went into foster care at the age of 7, and had periods of homelessness. Eventually, the Tuohy family took him in and later adopted him. He was skilled at sports such as football (US), basketball etc and went on to become a successful player for the NFL. <3
