Cerly Mess (28 days ago)
Wtf? Their bank account were already overflowing they didn't need Michael. They saw a soul in need of help and they took him in. How are they milking him ? They motivated him to follow his dream and motivated him to become a better version of himself

micheal was sent to this family. micheal realize this and the farther nit the mpm think she was his savior. not true lady. Micheal lnew he was to ne great,he knew from inside,he knew this. He speak truthfully about his situation and life without wasting his time on untures. He is super focus and awares of thing. The interveiw ia constant trying to get him yo say bad thing about his mother. Why ? what really happened. why did yhe movie mention he play football before the family met him. The father mention in interveiw that he told his wife about this child. It seem like they was looking for a savior for them selves.Listen to micheal in an interveiw he states he knew he was not going be on street.micheal knew he was talent and would be very sucessful. the husband knew this too. The wife had the talent and the back up to get what she wanted. she is gifted influencing people. how was they able to adopt this teenager. why didn,t they help the sisters. Why in the interveiws they act as if they are talking about a child instead a grown man. somthing wrong in this family.micheal is a great person always has beem with or without the so call adopted family. did he get money from the money ,who handling his finance. the movie was made more about the mother than the football player, micheal. He know this. The writers of the movie was clever and deceiving at the same time. watch the movie again, you see it for what it is. Micheal is a black man from tennesse went college in mississippi yet where is the picture of him with blacks? the population of blacks in theses areas is close in numbers. why won,t they pay the birth mother for interveiws ,the white one is getting paid. To micheal thank you for continuing loving you family ,your birth family and protecting them. The Amighty creator who put that knowing in you is greater than your adversary and will protect you. I love, you are love by many.thank you for making a different in so many lives. I thank you, the adopted family for your service and love to micheal also.Sweet birth mother ,thank you for having this bless child. Thank you for loving life and pressing on and doing your best in rearing your children.Mother,you must know your children love you and i know you love them. thank you for a wonderful son ,thank you we love you. birth mother you have cried enough, get to living. Love is what matter,give it and allow yourself to receive it. I too is a mothertake care.

Here's a case where the real person, Leigh Anne Tuohy, is more attractive than the actress who portrayed her, Sandra Bullock, who is also beautiful.  Fact is, these two r wonderful people & their religious faith is an integral part of why that is.

Most white people are NOT racist. I know some racists white people and in my mind just fluff them off as being somewhat stupid and socially "odd"..."ignorant and irritating". There are some black people like that also. That's life ......lots of stupid racists in the world and they come in all colors....black, white, red, brown, etc. ..... The movie blind side was great ! I loved it ! 👍😀. A real tear jerker ! Oh by the way....I'm white. Romanian actually...... Now don't call me a GYPSY .....that's RACIST ! Just kidding 😂🙄 it doesn't matter.....its NOT racist ! its just "confusion"....innocent ignorance.....NOT RACISM ! I'm getting real tired of "the race card being pulled way too often !"

THIS REMINDS ME OF THE STORY OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN. THE TOUHYS DID SOMETHING NOT EVEN BIGTIME PREACHER DO. THEY REACHED OUT AND HELPED SOMEONE WHO WAS HOPELESS. THIS STORY BRINGS ME TO TEARS EVERYTIME I WATCH IT. I KNOW NOW WHAT JESUS MEANT WHEN HE SAID WE MUST USE OUR WEALTH TO HELP OTHERS. GOD BLESS THE TOUHYS, MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU.

Well they should of stayed where ever they came from and you can enjoy where ever you came from...cause none of us us from america..god bless you!!😂
vegasrenie (2 years ago)
+Nordic Shaman - And then people started going to countries that weren't theirs and starting f***ing the populations. Racemixing. And then they started bringing people from countries where people were different from them and started f***ing them, too. More racemixing. If people had stayed in their own damn countries say, 5000 years ago, it wouldn't be an issue. But guess what. Wherever people meet people, they're going to find each other and have babies. It's the way people have always been. It's the way people are.
Nordic Shaman (2 years ago)
+blackflag mcc Yes send all racemixed people to a serten country were they can keep on racemixing when we racepure ppl can stay in our respective countries and be were we belong. And please build shithigh walls around scandinavia now. im afraid we are going to have a gigantique civilwar if we keep this up.

Natashka Powell (4 years ago)
The movie was amazing and inspirational. But it is the families motto from Corinthians that has turned my life around and I am looking at christianity for a path. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Amen

Natashka: How wonderful. If you still have questions or concerns regarding Christianity, let me know, and I will try to help you as best I can. Bless you in your journey.

As a young brown male, I cry every time I watch this movie, these lovely people caring about a poor young black kid, such nice people, gives me hope every time a white person gives me a dirty look or calls me a name, i try to remember that there are good white people out there as well.

oDJOldskull (1 year ago)
I don't understand people who give 'dirty looks'. Einstein once said that it's just a pure absurd to judge somebody by the color of his skin. Like come on. It's just more melanin. It doesn't mean somebody is stupid or smart, greedy or giving, empathethicall or ruthless and so on. Everyone may be any of this. Despite the background or 'race' (although I don't like this word). Look how silly it is when people even divide each other to 'races'. When a DNA test is taken, it only proves that we all are caucasian, african, asian etc. all at once. Cause for example our great grand grand father with caucasian 'origins' fell in love with that sweet bubbly island girl that he've met while visiting Mauritus. Let's not divide and let's not judge. There's nothing more fullfilling than to be kind to everybody. It costs nothing.

AbleAnderson (4 years ago)
you should go to NA, where they don't force jesus on you, and instead they refer to a higher power. For most people, that higher power is the power of others believing in you, a support group, the program itself, etc. Its nothing supernatural. Sounds like you took that ball and ran with it all the way to the bible sylvie
AbleAnderson (4 years ago)
My journal said "let us not be fooled into believing in supernatural things." then it goes on to say "let false holy books not deceive us, for religions like christianity and islam are complete jokes." I'm gonna bury this book in my backyard, and hopefully someone will dig it up in 100 years and consider it some kind of ultimate truth lol.
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
No, I wasn't raised this way. It's a miracle I found Jesus with how badly religion(s) and my parents spiritually abused me for 44 years. I found a Higher Power via Alcoholics Anonymous, started reading the Bible for myself and met God and accepted Jesus in my sinful place. The two most important books I read to unlearn what I was taught were "The Road Less Traveled" by M. Scott Peck and "Mere Christianity" by C. S. Lewis. I've been awakened for seventeen years! Thank you Jesus.
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
My New King James Version states, "Psalm 116:11 I said in my haste, “All men are liars.” Hence, I would say I would be leery about believing what you wrote. Although, it's neat that you journal. Finding God takes heart knowledge--not head knowledge-- as you said I was lacking. Jesus said (Amp) Luke 10:21 ...that You have concealed these things [relating to salvation] from the wise and understanding and learned, and revealed them to babes (the childish, unskilled, and untaught). I'm a babe! :)
AbleAnderson (5 years ago)
My journal says that my word is the truth. Use your head lol. There are hundreds of holy books out there that all say they are the word of god, and that they are the correct one. Why would yours be true. Could it possibly be because you were raised that way lol?? Wake up Sylvie.
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
Thank you for your feedback AbleAnderson. I would love to continue our talk as long as we continue to be respectful to each other. I am totally OK with being your Christian-nut-bag-youtube-friend. :)
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
And yes I do give God credit for everything and the evil you speak of is Biblical and serves a [higher] purpose. Ironically, I don't claim wisdom in order to explain His ways, but it is His show and He created all of it and so He should get full control of it. All those evil things that you speak of get rectified on the day of His wrath. We don't understand that because we are a society of instant gratification. We want justice NOW. Yes, I am a fool for Christ-- a nut bag as you say. :)
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
And I choose to believe the truth of the Bible because it says God's Word is truth, and I spent 44 years being led astray from abusive people who told me they were speaking what was true. We all have a story to tell. I believe there is a reason to believe such a God exists because His word says there will be a judgment day--a day of wrath--and being the one on the side of what you speak of (physical, emotional, and verbal abuse), I find comfort in a just and loving God who will settle things.
AshleyDesrameaux101 (5 years ago)
How about you let the family believe in what ever they want to believe in. They aren't hurting anyone and did an amazing thing for a kid that they could have easily turned their backs on. Please don't make this comment section into some debate. They believe in God and as long as that isn't hurting you or anyone you love, it shouldn't matter to you.
AbleAnderson (5 years ago)
It has nothing to do with being humble or not, it's about truth and delusion. There's no reason to believe such a god exists. If you're gonna go around giving "god" credit for everything, then god controls babies getting diseases, children getting sexually molested, people getting murdered, etc. Makes much more sense that there is no controlling hand, there are just people and people make decisions and people do things. Don't be a christian nutbag Sylvie
Sylvie Barton (5 years ago)
They are a Christian family who believes God is in control of EVERYTHING and so, yes, Michael was sent to them. Look up the word: humble That's what they are demonstrating in this video. You should give it a try.
AbleAnderson (5 years ago)
Michael was definitely not sent to you. You guys decided to stop, get out of the car, talk to him, take him home, and then ultimately adopt him. Those were all decisions you guys made, take credit for them. Don't say dumb shit like he was sent to us. No one was sent anywhere, that's what makes this a cool story.

A very inspirational story and the Touhy family does represent the best part of the Christian belief system, which is to reach out and give the love and support to those who are less fortunate . . . because you never know what the person who you give that support to can turn out to be.

If your pastor is passing on "Rumors" there could be a problem. Gossip is very sinful and as a pastor to be passing such rumors is quite sad. Wether it is true or not gossiping and passing it on is just plain wrong. We aren't perfect but as a pastor you should know better.

I've heard this rumor from multiple scources with great credability. You must be living under a rock if you never heard or even questioned it. My pastor is a great person who speaks the truth on every issue. You are filled with hate and reduce yourself to name calling.
mysticmeg111 (5 years ago)
Listen up you twit you are being presumptious. However, if I had a pastor who made derogatory remarks about Leigh Ann I would change my Church affiliation asap.
