Thanks to a book and an Oscar-nominated movie, the story of the Tuohy family and their adoption of Michael Oher has become one of the most talked-about true stories of our time. Now, finally, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy tell this astonishing tale in their own way and with their own words. For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Early on, Leigh Anne decided that her mission was to raise children who would become 'cheerful givers', while Sean believed that some day he could provide a home that would be 'a place of miracles'. Together, they raised two remarkable children - Collins and Sean Jr. - who shared their deep Christian faith. And when Leigh Anne and Sean opened their hearts to a homeless African-American boy named Michael, they transformed both his life and theirs.
