A Graduation Miracle...

Jeremy Dewayne Hamilton was born two months premature with cerebral palsy. Despite various surgeries for a shunt on his brain and months of therapy, in just a few short days he will have overcome all these obstacles and graduate from Columbia High School. Jeremy doesn't really perceive himself to be disabled and takes things in stride with the attitude of any typical teenager, which was plain to see on his shoot as he argued with his mom about his posture and whether or not he was smiling "just right". Speaking of family, I applaud the incredible support system this kid has and I was happy to see them just as enthusiastic about his future as they've been about his graduation and all that it entails, including his prom where Jeremy was given the award for "Prom Party Animal" - go ahead Jeremy & best of luck!
