American Heroes Christopher and Mattie


Christopher Reeve Mattie Stepanek


The story of these two can really change the way you look at life. Take their stories, the anecdotes given to us as free stuff and use it to influence your life. Whenever you feel you need support and guidance in your life, these are the two to turn to. We sometimes have to take a good long look at our lives to see what it is we really have and looking at others can really help you do this. Although it is a hard thing to do, being introspective is beneficial.
As a parent it is important to encourage our children to have role models and to look up to people. We want our children to be the best that they can be and allow nothing to hold them back. Someone with a disability who continues to live their life however they please and who makes a success of themselves is a great example to us all but in particular to children who may have a similar disability. These people are heroes because they encourage people to get the most out of life.

Micah misses Mattie so much!
They are both looking forward to Matties new book.
