Sam was born with an autosomal recessive form of microcephaly, a condition marked by a small head, severe developmental delays, blindness, and other challenges. He began receiving support services at 18 months and in the fall of 2007, began kindergarten in his community of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. This became an event which became a key post of the family's blog site, Horstmeyer Happenings.
