Thank you Mike Strehlow, Andrew, and CBS 58 for your beautiful and heartwarming story of our son, Anthony. His journey to gain meaningful employment has been made possible and enriched by countless numbers of beautiful people who understood his strengths, and supported him to reach his goals. And, although he will continue to strive to become a dispatcher, his current success has been nothing short of miraculous.

We have been hearing from friends all over the world about how his story has touched their lives. Anthony's former commander for Civil Air Patrol has asked him to speak in front of the squadron. It turns out that Anthony is doing the same job at Quantem, that his commander performed while serving in the U.S. Air Force.

His biological family in Russia is very proud of him and loved seeing his interview. We are attempting to translate the story so that they may appreciate the full story.

Our wish is that this story encourages and inspires others to persevere and reach for the stars, while also helping to open doors to employment for those with unique needs. We can tell you that it is worth the effort.

Thanks to CBS 58 for sharing our son's unique story of love. We are beyond proud of him.

In Appreciation,
Mark and Shawn Geinopolos
