Sometimes the Greatest Love Story Has Nothing to Do With Romance - Alex Bilodeau

Valentine's Day Alex Bilodeau #valentinesday #alexbilodeau

Whether or not you have been following the Olympics, you may have heard about Alex Bilodeau, the Canadian who has now won two gold medals. However, the fact that he took home his second gold medal of his career isn't the only thing making headline news. The other story, the one that touches our hearts, is the story about his love for his older brother, Frederic, who has cerebral palsy.


On this Valentine's Day, let us remember that sometimes the greatest love story has nothing to do with romance, yet everything to do with love.

Today, I wish you, my dear readers, a wonderful Valentine's Day and leave you with Alex Bilodeau's story, one that reminds us what true love is really about.

  5. Happy Valentine's Day. I love a good story like this. It's funny...this year, I got my nephew a giant Valentine's Day card and stuffed animal so that he would have it when he first woke up in the morning...and I felt like I was more concerned with how he felt today than my sweetie. His mother is not in his life, so I want to do things for him that he's most likely missing that a mother would do.

    1. Leah, did you hear the story about the Canadian who helped the Russian skier by running out and giving him a pair of skis when the Russian's broke, so that the Russian didn't have to wobble to the finish line?

      I've only watched a little bit of the olympics, but I so enjoy these types of stories more.

  15. What a great story Clara! Amazing people that live our world. For every person we complain about, there has to be one like these two. I can only hope I am as good as they both are.
