HHF Teen succeeds at blacksmithing!

Giuliano admiring the perfect 'S' hook he created and hammering out a poker*.  Giuliano recently became interested in blacksmithing, but no one knew how it would work.  There are a lot of 'two-handed' operations, but he impressed every skeptic with his determination and focus.

"Do I Really Need To Be Healed?" -- by Ryan

From http://www.livingonehanded.com/

A friend of mine took her daughter to the park recently. While they were there, a man asked if he could pray for my friend’s daughter. She said yes and he proceeded to pray for Kaelyn to be healed. For her to experience “normalcy.” And for her fingers to grow.

2012 Summer Outing Success!

What a fabulous, warm weekend we had with our HHF families.  On Saturday afternoon, we began at McCoy Stadium to meet PawSox player, Ryan Kadish.  He was kind enough to take lots of photos with our kids and sign many autographs.  Then we returned to our reserved seats to watch the game, grab some food and hang out for the evening together.  Thanks to HHF Dad, Kevin Gallagan, for helping Tanya Murphy (HHF Mom) coordinate so many special moments (and prices) for our families to start off the HHF weekend!

Jim Abbott's new book - 'Imperfect' - available April 2012

On an overcast September day in 1993, Jim Abbott took the mound at Yankee Stadium and threw one of the most dramatic no-hitters in major-league history. The game was the crowning achievement in an unlikely success story, unseen in the annals of professional sports. In Imperfect, the one-time big league ace retraces his remarkable journey.
