For the Record, Dick (Hoyt) Cried First

The following is hopefully the first of many guest posts from Liam's Mom.

Joan, Fabian, and Liam spent the day at Dick's home. Joan's account of their day. (Liam's story can be found HERE.)

We have done Disneyland, hiked the rockies, played in the waves in Hawaii and met Jake Shimabukuro. All good stuff. This weekend we had another kind of adventure. We were invited to meet Dick Hoyt at his home. His home is often referred to as a “museum” by those who know his and Rick Hoyts story. Its hard to explain what its like meeting the idol of special needs parents. Its big time.

The Hoyt home is found on a quaint country road in Holland MA. It has a lake view…
