About Sean & Leigh Anne Tuohy
“I think Michael had a much greater impact on our lives than we did on his. You take so much in life for granted, but when Michael moved in with us, he made us realize how blessed we are. We viewed life differently after he joined our family.” — Leigh Anne Tuohy
Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy’s life, as chronicled in Lewis’ New York Times number one best-seller, The Blind Side, went on to become a record-breaking Hollywood blockbuster that earned more than $300 million at the box office and became the number-one opening weekend for a sports film in history. The Blind Side tells the story of Michael Oher, a homeless teenager turned first round draft pick NFL football player, with the support and love of an unlikely adoptive family: Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy.
