Colin Farrell
Exclusive... Colin Farrell Takes Son Henry Out For Ice Cream

Colin’s son James suffers from Angelman Syndrome: “The only time I’m reminded that there’s something different about him, that he has some deviation from what’s perceived to be normal, is when I see him with other kids his age. Then it comes back to me. But I’ve never thought of my son as being someone with a disability. From day one I felt that he’s the way he’s meant to be. Some of the best things that happen to you in life are unplanned, and that’s what Jimmy (James) was. He was a gift. There’s no embarrassment or heartbreak.”

Jenny McCarthy

Jenny’s son Evan has Autism but is making improvements all of the time: “Evan couldn’t talk — now he talks. Evan couldn’t make eye contact — now he makes eye contact. Evan was antisocial — now he makes friends. It was amazing to watch, over the course of doing this, how certain therapies work for certain kids and they completely don’t work for others … When something didn’t work for Evan, I didn’t stop. I stopped that treatment, but I didn’t stop.”
