- Passed from pillar to post as a baby due to his brother being in hospital a lot.
- Suffered suicidal thoughts after enduring bullying at school (at which time I was broken, for him and me, it is an horrendous thing for anybody to go through and all I wanted to do was protect him).
- Come through a trial bike accident in which he broke both bones in his wrist and dislocated it.
- Was told by teachers he would never pass his exams (yet he did, all of them), this was by the same teachers who offered no support whilst he was being bullied.
- Survived my single parenting (so I can’t be all that bad at it).
I’m so proud of the man he has become. It’s been a day for happy tears.
