The 2016 theme for March DD Awareness month is “What’s Your Story.”
Michael Brady of Wilmington wanted to share his. He lived in several states during his upbringing, and if he could live anywhere, he would choose Texas for two reasons: The weather, and because he remembers spending time on a ranch working and riding horses. This is one of his favorite memories from his childhood.
Basketball is an important activity for Michael. He plays for fun to fill his competitive side, as he is part of the Shooting Stars Special Olympics team.
Michael describes himself as honest, kind, outgoing, very forgiving, and looks for the best in others. He thinks this might come from being adopted, which is something people most likely would not guess about him. He does not always agree with his parents; however, he looks for the good in the situations, because they chose to make him part of their family.
Michael likes to help people and is able to do so with his current community job that he calls his dream job. He is a school crossing guard. He says this is very rewarding to him, not just for the money, but rather that he is helping to keep children safe. The safety of children is very important to Michael.
As for the future of his “What’s your story” he will be looking for a house in the community to call his own home.
