My 18yo foster son just learned that he is getting a 100% free ride to a 4-year college. First in his family to ever go to college. I am so, so proud of him.


Due to the limitations of foster care, I cannot identify him, or post his name or picture on social media. So, I won't - but man, do I want to. I want to shout it from the rooftops. He's breaking the cycle of poverty. He is more likely to have children that go to college. For now he wants to do mechanical engineering, and he's already into robotics and 3D printing. He's going to kill it.

Join me in celebrating tonight. Raise a glass to the rare, rare foster kid that makes it out OK. He's got 4 younger siblings that get to watch him set the pace. He's going to be their hero.

*Edit* Didn't mean for this to be self-congratulatory if it comes across that way. My wife and I have been in this boy's life for only about 6 months. 100% of the credit goes to him and him alone, I'm just happy to be here to support him.

*Edit 2* Reddit Gold? 2,000 up doots and climbing? I was always worried that my top post would be some silly cat video. Glad it was something nice about my kid instead. Yay internet, you rock.
