Colin Farrell Talks About Raising A Son With Special Needs

| Filed under: Colin FarrellCeleb KidzCute Kidz

Colin Farrell, whose 9-year-old son, James, was born with Angelman Syndrome, opens up about how getting involved in the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics changed his life.

Here's what he said:

“When you’re the parent of a child with special needs, it’s important to feel that you’re not alone. It was at the Special Olympics in Shanghai in 2007 that I decided, after consulting with James’ mother, that I wanted to talk publicly about the pride and joy I had in our son. He has enriched my life, but I don’t want to minimize the trials that so many families go through: the fear, consternation, frustration, and pain. We share in the smallest victories: the first words at age 6 or 7, being able to feed oneself at 19, and getting the seizures under control. When James took his first steps at age 4, I nearly broke in half!”

Colin sounds like such a good guy!

We can't wait to see some adorable pictures of him and his son!!!
