Sunday Snapshot-The Draft

We did it!
We got the number one draft pick.

We all gathered in the den to watch the draft Thursday night.
We knew if the Panthers chose the number one pick then Adam(the first #1 pick) was needed on Friday for a press conference.

We saw Cam get his phone call.

Then Adam got his call.

Friday we headed down to the stadium for the press conference.
Adam had to autograph a hat for Cam. He put his number #1 on it.
Too cute!

He gave it to Cam after he said "Cam, welcome to my team."

Then Cam signed Adam's hat.
I wonder if Cam will treasure his hat as much as Adam treasures his.

He gave Adam a high- five. Here he is wearing his autographed hat from Adam.

We love these two women.
Amy works with Make-A Wish and Sarah works for the Panthers.
Sammy calls these girls her BFF's.

It was a fantastic day!

Time to head home.

In just a little over a year Adam has had quite a ride.

He had so much local media coverage back in December when his wish was granted.

Once again he is on the front page of the sports section of our paper and the Raleigh paper.

Someone told us he was on the paper in Toronto.

If you are checking in from Sunday Snapshot and you have seen a
picture of our boy let us know.

We have this feeling that Adam may just have a life like Forrest Gump.

Small brushes with famous people and events.

Who knows what is in store for him.

My parents neighbors have referred to him as the future Governor of NC!

  1. Oh how I love it....everyone can see how special he is! Go Adam!!!

  2. Wow, what fun! He looks so happy up there!

  3. LOVE IT! I saw him in the Observer. My daughter just walked by and was most impressed! She is a HUGE Cam Newton fan (since we are Auburn fans). She probably would have done cartwheels and backflips on Thursday night if she knew how. :)

  4. What a wonderful, wonderful thing! I love the smile on his face!

  5. I love this post and the continuation of this story! How amazing for Adam and how amazing he is! Thanks for sharing.
