  1. Dear Adewumi Family,

    What an incredible story you all have and warmest congrats to your son Tanitoluwa on his incredible success with chess. I write an Insights Blog on growing from adversity and how challenge may be used to bring forth our gifts and – eve – transformation. This week my friend and subscriber to the blog sent me the NPR story about Tanitoluwa. I was so moved and it was such a remarkable example of losing to win that I included a link to his NPR story in my writing this week titled ‘Getting It Right.’ If you’d like me to forward you the blog by email (as it’s not on the Rising from Falling website as new content only goes out to subscribers), I’d be happy to do so. Just send me an email address to where you’d like it sent. Lastly, and most importantly, wishing you & your family abundant blessings and much success here in the US or wherever you go.
    Warmly and with heartfelt congrats,
    Judy Setting
