By Joanna Kovacs, Nazareth, Pennsylvania

Joey sounded so discouraged that April night in 2013. He was calling from the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California, where he spent his days throwing the shot put.

“Mom, I don’t know if this is going to work out,” he said. “I just can’t seem to make all of these changes that Coach wants.”

Joey was 23 years old, six feet tall, 275 pounds, and yet he would always be my baby.
