Proud Papa

This afternoon Matthew made his debut in net with the Don Mills Diamonds. It was the third game of the season but Matthew's first as a goaltender.

He started the game and gave way to the other goalie half way through the game. Matthew allowed four goals but had little or no support from his defencemen. We won handily and 11 year old Matthew was sure excited as we drove home from Toronto!

The Diamonds are made up of boys and young men with various physical or neurological challenges. As I have mentioned in previous posts, Matthew has Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism.

It was a great experience for all of us. We'll be back again December 16th for Matthew's next game.



  1. He is so cute David and how blessed he is to have you as his Papa!
    In years to come he will treasure all of these "life" pictures that you are taking of him!

    Have a good weekend, my fellow pilgrim...From Terry

  2. Woo Hoo!!!!! Way To Go Mattthew!

  3. Congrats to Matthew!!! (yet another hockey star in the making perhaps ?!?). God really IS good, and your sons are lucky to have been adopted in to such a great home.

    Wish Matthew good luck on his next game! :)
