SuperDad Award: Jason Sobel

Sometimes life takes unexpected twists and turns. Sometimes your story is not exactly how you imagined. Sometimes you have to go through some darkness before you find yourself back in the light. And sometimes, once you find that light you know it’s exactly where you are meant to be. Jason is that light for me. Jason was my “second chance,” and I was his. He shows me unconditional love and support, and has my back in everything, including cheering me on from the sidelines with my blog, www.whineandcheezits.com and my podcast, The Keep It Real Moms… and pretty much any endeavor I throw myself into. He is my “sicker than the average” everything. He keeps me sane more than he makes me insane… and that’s love. I feel lucky every day that we get to do life together, even when he kvetches. Marriage and life in general is hard, you guys. But… when you have a true partner and you don’t just love each other, but LIKE each other, you can’t ask for anything more. I hit the jackpot.

~ Rachel (Jason’s wife)

Supermom Award: Lety Garza

I’ve always looked forward to becoming a mom, and when we tried to start a family, I was given to devastating news that perhaps may not be possible due to my endometriosis. After having a procedure to fix the situation, I was told that my body may never hold a full-term
pregnancy, until the day that I was blessed with a baby boy growing inside of me. At 22 weeks pregnant, I was told the baby that was growing inside me was going to be born with Bilateral Clubfeet. It was a shock, but not devastating, as I knew this was just another hurdle we would overcome… and we did. Diego has been a blessing, and all the surgeries and work he has endured to have those happy feet corrected have made me a stronger mom and him a very resilient young boy.

 

SuperKid Award: Adam

SuperKid Award: Adam

Adam is a 13-year old SuperKid because he is trying to make a positive difference in the world! He developed a book that captured his desire to teach his great-grandpa’s mantras to other children. He then wanted to visit kids in hospitals to help them heal. Created by Adam for other kids, his dog yogi & meditation character, Wuf Shanti, teaches health, wellness, peace, and positivity—much like the “Barney” character of Yoga. There’s no other character like this, and it is so important right now to spread this message, especially with so much tragedy happening around the world.

Adam believes that the next generation is the key to changing this world. Together we can make a positive impact and teach kids to LOVE. 

Wuf Shanti videos are aired on Florida PBS stations and the Children’s TV Network, which is the national (soon-to-be international) in-house children’s hospital station. This expansive initiative has gained 60K followers on FaceBook. Adam Levine even posted about Adam and Wuf Shanti on his social media pages. What’s more—the mobile App comes out next week! Adam’s enormous heart and unstoppable determination is truly succeeding to make a positive difference in the world.

Learn more about Wuf Shanti and his mission, intention, values, hospital tours, and recent press from the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel on the official website. Tap into the Wuf Shanti YouTube Channel for a complete collection of episodes.
