These athletes did not let their disabilities deprive them of the chance to become champions. In order to win a Paralympic medal, it takes disabled athletes more than just willpower and courage; they must also have the everlasting support and patience of those closest to them. Here you'll get the chance meet the Paralympians as well as their parents: both those who accepted their fate and raised happy and strong children, and those who fell out of the race and gave up on their kids, only to discover that foster parents had nurtured the athletes and helped them become Paralympic champions.
