Jimmy Graham's Unlikely Story
 
Touching video. Enjoyed the story.
Makes his story even more incredible.
Everyone needs to see this.

This kid could have easily ended up in jail. Wonder how many great football players are locked away in jail because they didn't have this kind of person in their life. I would like to personally thank this lady for everything she did. This was aired in New Orleans last night. I would personally like to thank god and her parents for the day she was born.

Great share.

Great story.

I am not of those who would forgive the natural Mom. She would never hear from me again and I would absolutely never send her a dollar of support.

I hope, beyond Jimmy Graham's success on the field, that he sleeps well at night knowing that blood may be thicker than water, but water can be heated warmer than blood.

Praise the Lord for women like Ms. Becky Vinson.

What a great story, and I never get tired of hearing it. As a father of two I feel qualified to say the following:

**** those two mother ****ers who gave him up. **** them hard.

I bet that **** sucker of a father and that ***** of a mother wish they hadn't done that now.

Needs to made into a movie to be fair, incredible story and the lady that took him in needs to be given a friggen life time achievement award, what a special person to take a young guy in when times are hard for her also

The kid would have never turned out that good. He'd be in jail. :bng:

Yeah you're right. Isn't it odd to think that that horrible Horrible HORRIBLE thing those piece of **** **** suckers did to him turned out to likely be the best thing that ever happened to him? Life is funny like that.

Take a look at the Ronnie Milsap story. Much the same.

He is/was a blind conutry music pianist for you uncultured brutes.

His mother used to torment him in front of his non-blind brother about being blind, useless and pitiful.

At one time, for a while, he was as popular as Elton John. He never returned his mother's calls once he got famous. Good for him.

I hate MEAN. Never been MEAN.

Jimmy Graham story, what can you say it is almost unbelievable.
And yeah Alaska, I am a fan of Ronnie Milsap and his story is amazingly similar.
You wonder where these people get the inner strength to survive.

Unfortunately, for every Jimmy Graham success story there are thousands that end up dead or in prison or are mentally and spritually destroyed.
