AJ Stafford is a 5 year old that suffers from some medical conditions; his primary diagnoses being cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He can’t talk or walk or roll over or sit up on his own. His mom Stephanie says that all of his needs are taken care of by her and her husband Andy. It is usually hard to recognize how AJ is feeling since his responses are quite subtle. But one day around last year, something special happened.
When they were on their way home from vacation, Sara Bareilles’ song “Brave” blared through the speakers. And that’s when little AJ got really vocal and thrilled. His parents had never seen him react like that before. They were giddy with happiness. They posted the video on social media hoping that Sara would somehow see how she got through to him and connect with their little kid. According to Sara’s Twitter, she has been trying to connect with the family now.
