The "Bigger than Baseball Event" was not only a really fun day for our whole family, but it was also heartwarming to see so many young people put forth the effort to make my son's day special. From tossing a ball to him, asking him to play "tag" on the playground, playing video games with him, jumping in the bounce house with him & much more. A special shout out goes to Justin, Mason's buddy for the day who was a great sport about following him around & doing whichever activity that he wanted to do.
As the parent of an Autistic child, we long for our children to be included & accepted, just the way they are. This is what I felt yesterday. For that I want to say a heartfelt "thank you" to each & every person that was involved in the "Bigger than Baseball Event".
To the boys & young men in the 5 Tool baseball club...please know that your kindness & acceptance can change the world...one child at a time. Kindness costs nothing...I hope you carry that with you wherever you go!
Stefan’s Hope sent my daughter to the amazing Camp Grace Bentley outside of Port Huron, Michigan, a few years in a row. They offer a week long, overnight camping experience for special needs kids of all ages. Rachel absolutely loved going to camp. She is on oxygen now, so we can’t attend the overnight camps anymore. The opportunity that was given to her through Stefan’s Hope was priceless. I am so grateful for their financial assistance is giving my daughter the chance to be away from home. Independence is so important for children.
This past year, Stefan’s Hope assisted in getting Rachel a new winter wheelchair cover system from Koolway Sports. It’s so wonderful to know there are groups willing to assist with families in need.
Thank you again!
