"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."

He continued, "It feels really good, but my accomplishments haven't all been about school. They have also been about perseverance here at St. James."

Noting that his experience in school at times can be challenging, he explained it was the opposite when it comes to the church.

"I have always felt loved and supported here," he explained. "I am happy and feel accomplished after each service…I feel empowered here and welcome. I am accepted here for who I am."

Meanwhile, Roberts, 61, also shared her son's exciting life update during her appearance on an episode of The View. She told the audience she had asked for Nick's approval before revealing the news.

"He has accomplished so many things. He has gotten a black belt in Taekwondo. He swam competitively," Roberts said. "He tried to train for the marathon, although he changed his mind."

"I got his permission to talk about it because that is his private business but he is so excited and we are too," she concluded.
