It’s been a year of firsts for 14-year-old Phillip Croft. His first time in America, his first track meet, and his first family. Phillip was adopted from China just over a year ago, and since then he’s been learning the nuances of wheelchair racing while adapting to his new life.
“When you’re adopted things just all change,” said Phillip. He joined the Croft family last year after living in an orphanage for most of his life. “I was just really happy and so excited.”
