You start with a little girl, dropped in an orphanage and afflicted with a spinal condition that has paralyzed her below the belly button. She's cared for, yes, but none of the well-meaning adults look at this child, scooting around the facility on her hands, and imagine a future ripe with possibility. How do you get from there to a 24-year-old woman nicknamed "The Beast," a fearsomely muscled athlete who believes her body can fulfill the most outlandish ambitions her mind concocts?

Seeking the best for our children I read the article in today's Sun ("Athlete, 16, seeks a court order," March 15) on Tatyana McFadden by Tyrone Richardson. I thought it was a wonderful, well-written article and I would like to comment on it. I couldn't believe the mean-spiritedness with which Mark Blom spoke about the family of Tatyana McFadden, who only seeks what every parent in Howard County seeks for their children: The opportunity to compete and be part of the extracurricular activities offered to all students.
