Robin Williams To Care For Christopher & Dana Reeve's Son.

Wow! I was wondering who would take care of the young boy and it seems Robin a close friend of Christopher has stepped up to the plate and is fulfilling a promise made in 95'. Way to go Robin Williams and I truly hope that he can do a good job and the boy can try to find some happiness. A friend of the Reeves' said: "He has already been making good on a promise he made to Chris in 1995."

"They were closer than brothers and Robin swore then and there that he would look after Dana and Will after Chris was gone."

"Both of them knew Chris might not last long but neither of them could possibly have imagined the tragedy that would befall Dana so soon after Chris's own death."

I read that last night, but I didn't see this nice pic of all of them anywhere! It makes me so happy he'll be with a family that appears to be intact...I believe Chris and Robin had been friends since college.

That's awesome. I just totally forgave him for making Patch Adams.

I want to be happy about this....

But, was Robin really that big of a part of this boy's life? I don't know why - but this makes me sad. I was imagining he was living with like and aunt & uncle with cousins that were like siblings, you know?

Robin Williams is amazing. Just totally amazing. A little manic, but...

I've seen pics of Robin's wife, and she looks nice, so I will believe that this could be good. How could life be boring with Robin either? Sometimes family friends can be better than family. When I was young, and my mom was a single mother, her friends were more of an extended family to me than my actual family.

This just makes me so sad. I can't imagine losing both parents... and having no one. Just so sad. I'm glad Robin stepped up to the plate.
