Summer is the time where families create memories that last a lifetime. But when a family has a child with a disability sometimes those memories are harder to create. There was a time when Ben couldn’t sit in the sun, or on the sand, or experience water because of sensory deprivation issues that resulted from so much time spent in hospitals and in our home.
But as Ben has progressed and become more independent our lives have become more active and our summers have become more memorable. We went on our first vacation a few years ago, and this year we were able to experience a pretty typical family summer. Vacation at the beach… sporting activities for the kids… weekends at the pool.
Your support helps organizations that empowers families to live more independent lives and create their own memories. Ours have been very special.
