Thread: Graduation

  1. #1

    Graduation

    Today's the day!

    Noah, aka, buckwheat, graduates from the University of Oregon with a BA in Spanish. There will be 50+ family and friends present to embarass him with love. His midwives who delivered him 26 years ago, his physiatrist from acute rehab, professors, his neuro-chiropractor who always said "yes" about recovery and many others.

    Pics and a story later next week.

    Wow John, that is great.......

    Its so wonderful to hear a success story. It is also nice to get to embarress them really good by being proud parents one last time. LOL You know us parents go a little whacky at times like these.

    I am really happy for Noah and your family......I hope this is just the beginning of many of his recovery/yes I can stories.......

    Have a great day!!!!!

    Congratulations...NOAH...YOU BE THE MAN!!

    Congratulations, Congratulations

    From all of us here at CC as we've watched him grow, become a man
    in his own right and pushed himself to be where he is today. That's
    awesome, as we have an inkling of what his struggles must have been.

    I can only imagine how you must feel....ecstatic, in a word, just a
    little bit maybe.....hee hee

    Your life is what you make it, and only you have that choice!
