Never underestimate the difference you all make in these family’s lives. You are truly changing their worlds. I know from how people changed my sons life when he was in Special Olympics. I know it’s a different organization but the outcome was the same.A good side note from this event..
Oddly enough as kids were meeting captains, I found the same family I took out last year. So I took them out again, why not? This year was totally different. Their son Jackson, who was largely introverted last year, was off the hook excited to go this year. He can't really put it together in words, but I could easily see he was having a great time. He was a totally different kid. Sure, he's a year older, but I can't help but think that this whole thing helped him in some little way.
