It's nice to see Oher helping out kids in similar circumstances, as he did Monday at the Arrow Child and Family Ministries in Parkville, where he met about 70 children. He was accompanied by Leigh Anne Tuohy, his adoptive mother who was portrayed in the film by Sandra Bullock. According to The Sun's report, Oher acknowledged that he was at a loss for words when asked to speak to the students at a microphone. "Years ago I never dreamed of coming to a place like this, seeing jerseys with my number on the wall," he said. "I know you guys are going through some of the same things. … Keep fighting, keep overcoming adversity."
