April 16th, 2015

Tommy Connolly was just 13 years old the last time he saw his favorite cousin Angela. Christian Broda read that they reconnected via Facebook while Connolly was on Holiday break in December. Very soon after the initial message, he found Angela was homeless and pregnant. She needed help and he felt a calling to provide that help. When he met with her, she was about 32 weeks into her pregnancy and he knew he had to take her in, there were no other options. ”It’s not her fault she’s just a little girl who needed help,” he said. Uni Student Helps Raise Baby Connolly worked full time time to cover the cost of moving into a house and purchase items for the baby. He put his athletics on hold for a while. He has been told that he is isn’t thinking about himself or his studies. He has replied that people are correct. He is helping raise a child. He is thinking about providing for the future. He returned to the University full time beginning in March. Tommy Connolly agrees that what he is doing is the right thing, however he doesn’t feel he should be getting all of the attention. ”Angela does 90 per cent of the work – and if it’s one or two years of my life I have to put on hold to make sure two lives are going to be saved it’s nothing at all.”
