Being Conner’s mom is such a joy for me. He has overcome huge obstacles and works so hard to achieve his goals. I can’t believe it’s almost time for him to head to college.
He will start at the Honors College at Oregon State University in the fall. We are beyond proud, but we know it has not been easy. In an essay for a college-level English class, Conner wrote eloquently and candidly about his journey toward learning to accept and live with Usher and not let it define or limit him. I share some of it here with this permission.
You can read his powerful essay here. Thank you, Conner, for everything you do for our family and the example you set for all your brothers, especially Dalton.
