YMCA of Tyler Texas’ Childcare Making a Difference in the Lives of Families: A Letter from Evan’s Parents
The following is a testimonial of how my son Evan has benefited from the YMCA. It all started back in 2009-2010. Despite his disabilities, my son Evan was growing yet the problem is he wasn’t getting around other kids besides the classroom in school. Evan is legally blind and has cerebral palsy. For an individual in Evan’s condition, he needs to be around other kids who play, laugh, fail, and simply do kid things. That is when the YMCA came in. My wife knew of an organization that not only provided the above examples, but also would have patience with Evan in a way that other organizations could not. When Evan goes to the YMCA, he not only can finally feel like he is a kid again, but he also gets around other adults who believe in him. We are deeply grateful for the YMCA and hope for the deepest of blessings on YMCA staff this year.
