For the first time, the remarkable couple depicted in the film The Blind Side tell their own deeply inspiring story. First came the best-selling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie - the story of Michael Oher and the family who adopted him has become one of the most talked-about true stories of our time. But until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told this astonishing tale in their own way and with their own words.

For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become cheerful givers. Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be a place of miracles. Together, they raised two remarkable children - Collins and Sean Jr. - who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. And then one day, Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael and decided that her family could be his. She and her husband taught Michael what this book teaches all of us: Everyone has a blind side, but a loving heart always sees a path toward true charity.

Michael Oher's improbable transformation could never have happened if Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy had not opened their hearts to him. In this compelling, funny, and profoundly inspiring book, the Tuohys take us on an extraordinary journey of faith and love - and teach us unforgettable lessons about the power of giving.

    " Great book. Uplifting. A little self-congratulatory in places, but the Tuohys were asked to write about themselves after a hit movie about them so it would be hard not to sound that way. If you liked SJ in the movie, you will laugh at his chapter. "

    " This book explains the story behind the Blindside, and reveals what great role models the Touhy's are to the children they've mentored and to all of us. "

    " I really enjoyed reading the Tuohy's remarkable story! It really gave a new meaning to charity. The only disclaimer that I have is that they tended to talk way too much about their materialistic ways of living. "

    " To see the non movie star version was really awesome. I enjoyed hearing this family's perspective. "
