Colin Farrell’s Touching Words About His Son

colin_farrell180.jpgColin Farrell had some very touching words for People when referring tohis son, James who was diagnosed with a neurological disorder shortly before he turned one. It was last year that Farrell took advantage of the celebrity platform that he stands on to teach others about his son’s disorder – Angelman Syndrome, which affects fine motor skills and usually impedes walking and other movement.

People reports Colin as saying,

“I didn’t talk about my son [but] I felt like I was betraying him, like it could be misconstrued as shame, which would be terrible, because he’s such a celebration.  look around and I see people who move perfectly, who walk with grace, who speak with great diction and clarity and a great use of the English language and we’re all miserable f—ers – including me, at times. And then I see this fella who doesn’t move the way what’s perceived to be ‘normal’ is, and he’s as happy as can be.”

Farrell has now become inspired to help with Special Olympics. He shares custody of his son with Kim Bordenave, James’ mother. Approximately 1 in 30,000 children can have the syndrome, which is a result of the 15th chromosone’s dormancy.
