I want you to watch him outside of our studios earlier today and here he goes his his name is Isaac Lufkin. His mother is Lori and they join us here in the studio. How are you I’m good you just got back from the Super BowlNK] invited you go yes. It was really exciting met the president or not the president but Bill Clinton and you met Jennifer Gardner mm-hmm she gave you kiss I want to know start at the beginning.
You Were Born Without Arms Yes.
I was born with upper bilateral limb deficiency and I had a twin. I guess never named her was it Elizabeth. No well. It was a twin and she had no heart so.
She Didnt Live And.
Then my mom didn’t know and then all of a sudden. I just pop out of nowhere No I’m here Wow all right so you grow up and you must be a amazing mom because a lot of people. I mean I know I know a lot of people with you know. All four limbs and their parents are like you’re not playing football that’s too dangerous.
I Mean You You Encouraged Him
to play football and encouraged him to never you just do it yourself pretty much. In the beginning he didn’t really have a whole lot of opportunities. A lot of schools wouldn’t give him a shot at playing football, whether they rules and regulations and laws and regulations, But I have to admit When classical did give him the shot. I was instantly that that fear actually did overcome me. I was like okay wait a minute.

Now Hes Got The Shot.
It’s an aggressive sport right What what am I going to do and you have I mean were you playing a football Were you just practicing it? How did you learn to do this well. I used to sit at home. I had a pretty big backyard in Maine and I sit there and I kicked the ball to the side of the other side of my field. Then I’d run over I’d pick it up and I go kick it again.
Id Do That For Hours.
It was entertaining so an end. You like encouraged him you got to do everything yourself right for instance. I mean just show me what your regular life is open up open up your can again Yeah Wow and you’re on the computer. Yes I go on a computer a lot like you know Facebook and stuff nobody.
Look At His Pass Code, Dont
look at his pass code and you are Did you ever feel first of all Did you ever feel like I can’t do this? I don’t want to do this Did you ever feel that way Yes When it comes to choice, what comes to chores yeah and did you ever feel like he shouldn’t do these things or or you know not that he shouldn’t things never obviously came easy to him and he doesn’t remember but when he was younger toddler age and that sort of thing. He did have that drive and desire to succeed and to please me. But he also did have that weak moments where he was discouraged either like I’m gonna give up. I can’t do this and that’s when I instilled the one quote that he absolutely hates, which is what Isaac I can’t means I. Won’t You were gonna yeah! I’m telling you right now because I remember being your age and my mother passed away at about your age and my mother was doing the same kind of crap to me at the time, and I didn’t appreciate it until I was about thirty but and when hopefully you’ll wake up sooner than I did, but at some point you were gonna realize what an amazing mom and how important that that quote is I have a daughter with cerebral palsy and her grandmother gave her and she still has it in her room the whole train that could when she was a baby and as I think I can I think I can I think again and attitude his makes them all the difference makes all the difference, so what do you what do you want to do from here or do you.
See Your Life Well I Want To Be

I’m I’m a decent student Do you have do you because I read that you don’t. I mean you drop your backpack or something you don’t want anybody to pick it up No no.
