Marlon's Swimming Adventure

We were able to take 8 boys swimming one Saturday from ABP3.
Lil' Marlon had the time of his life. He did not know how to swim at first, so we had to keep a close eye on him.
As the day went on he watched the other boys closely, and later that day he could swim. The poor lil' thing was just not strong enough to hold himself up yet. After that he was jumping to us, going under water, and swimming like a little fish under water.
He also ate, ate, ate, ate, and ate some more! We had food that he had never tasted before. He tried Ritz crackers with cheese in the middle for the first time. He loved them! He must have eaten at least 8-10 in one minute. It was such a joy to spend the day with him and watch him open up so quickly to us. He is such a blessing to our lives, and continues to light up our days with that smile.
