Is The Blind Side Based On A True Story?

The movie 'The Blind Side' is the story about the remarkable Tuohy family from Memphis and how the love and support they express for each other changes their lives -- and the life of the teenager they adopt.
I was wondering if the movie is based on a true story.
Did it happen for real or is it based on a book?

It is a true story.

The Blind Side depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher (Aaron Quinton), a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys (Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw), a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher's presence in the Touhys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

The trailer basically shows the entire movie (why do they do that?!) but it looks like a very inspirational true story.
