  1. Cute video Sylvia, thank you for sharing it. I like what the teachers said in the beginning about how they’re all nice. Thank you for co-hosting this month. Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Hi Sylvia – this is so empowering for all the kids who get to view it … I’m so pleased for them … his daughter Illiana will be such a wonderful advocate for those who need support and encouragement – great #WATWB … thank you – Hilary

  3. What a wonderful team these two make: Miguel for being an outstanding father who believes his daughter can do anything, and Illiana for coming out of her shell, evolving and showing others that having a disability does not mean she cannot have a happy, productive life. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story!

  4. Thank you for sharing this very moving and informative video!!! It opened up my eyes much wider to what folks with disabilities face, and what an empowering avenue sports is for disabled people fortunate enough to be able to participate. Like Ashlynn, I sincerely hope he inspires people to understand and support handicapped athletes. (I personally support Mouth & Foot Painting Artists – (MFPA) — the art they create with brushes held in mouths and toes is amazing and inspiring.)
