“And just like that! Nick Roker: High School graduate from the [Aaron School],” Roker captioned photos of Nick as a toddler and a high school graduate. “We are sooo proud of this young man.”
“What a day this had been! A heart full of joy and gratitude!” Roberts captioned her Instagram post, which included a heartwarming photo of her tearfully hugging Nick while Roker watches with tears in his eyes. “Happy graduation day Nick Roker. Your village has never failed! “

“It was difficult. We’re so proud of him, all the work he’s done, the people who have helped him along the way. It literally does take a village,” he said. “It was a terrific moment and he’s put in so much hard work and I’m just so very proud of this young man.”
“Of course, Deborah, his mom, did the lion’s share of the work,” Roker added.
Last month, Roker shared a piece of a sermon Nick gave at the family’s church. In the clip, Nick spoke about his recent accomplishments, including the time he had spent at the place of worship.
“Today, I am 19 years old and about to graduate high school,” he shared. “I have a learning disability, and I have worked extra hard to get to this point. This last semester, I earned all A’s on my report card.”
