Have you heard of Kid President?
If you haven’t, I want to introduce you to him. His real name is Robby Novak, and he’s 11 years old. He stars in a series of inspirational and lighthearted YouTube videos, which have collectively been viewed tens of millions of times. I want to share one, “An Open Letter to Moms,” with you today in honor of Mother’s Day.
Robby has good reason to praise moms. His own mother, Laurie Novak, is a pretty incredible lady.
Laurie and her husband, David, already had three biological children when they decided to serve as foster parents. Eventually they welcomed Robby and his older sister, Lexi, into their home.
The brother-and-sister pair both have a condition called osteogenesis imperfecta, which is a genetic disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily. (Robby has had more than 70 bone breaks, and Lexi more than 80.)
Putting their original fears aside, the Novaks eventually adopted Robby and Lexi. I recommend you read the complete story – it’s a tale that showcases the best of mothers everywhere.
Like Robby points out in the video, “Mom upside down is Wow.”
Thanks for all you do, Moms!
Happy Mother’s Day.
