Boy Finally Gets Autograph Then Gives it to Boy In Wheelchair

Family Life - Kids

football autograph given to wheelchair-bound boy, family photoKanye Ortiz loves the football players on the Houston Texan team, so his family showed up at their practice field to try to get an autograph. They had no idea the nine-year-old's spontaneous act of kindness would melt hearts across the city.

It all started when one of them asked, “What would J.J. Watt do?”

Kanye waited among the throng of fans to get close to J.J., his favorite player. After he got his football signed by the athlete he was walking away and saw a teen in a wheelchair who was unable to get up close.

The young boy then made a decision that stunned his family.

“I was like, ‘Mom, I want to give this to the boy in the wheelchair.’”

15-year-old Zuriel Sanchez, who suffers from spina bifida, said he will never forget Kanye's kindness.

GNN has really changed the way I see the world. A few months ago I realized that I was getting really bogged down by all the terror and destruction that hit me first thing in the morning, and throughout my day. Now, with the Good News Network set as my homepage, I see first the good that goes on in the world and my attitude and state of mind are much better.
