Henry's 2nd homecoming!!

By NANCY NEWELL

Our son, Henry Meece, had his first homecoming on March 30, 1990, when he joined our family at 6 months of age. He is getting ready to board the plane for his second homecoming, returning to his birthplace - Seoul, Korea, where he will join thousands of other champions from around the world. Of course he is excited for the competition and the new friends he will surely meet, but he can't believe that he will finally see where he was born. He is ready to soak it all in. I think Henry will make both his countries proud. We are cheering you on. GO HENRY!

About NANCY NEWELL: I am Henry's mom. We are so excited and will cheer for Henry and all the athletes as they compete in the 2013 games.
