This is Isaiah.

Isaiah is four and was born with cerebral . I’ve only met him once so far but let me tell you, this kid is really cool.

In about a month doctors are going to operate on him, try to losen things up so that he can one day walk without the aid of a walker.

I don’t know too much about him yet, other than that he is extremely brave, extremely smart and extremely cute.

His mother has agreed to let me follow Isaiah for the next few months and document his struggle to walk with his own two legs.

I can honestly say that I haven’t been as excited about a project like this for a long time. It will be good to work on something important for a change. Not that I don’t value our man-on-the street interviews that I have to shoot on Fridays. Okay, the truth? I don’t value them at all.

But this should be a lot of fun. I just need to work at doing the story the justice it deserves.

Thanks for reading!
