Update and Video of Nicky at home in California

Here is a video you might like. We have been in the pool everyday and his swimming is getting so much more meaningful to nick. He loves diving for sticks and he has now independently started swimming freestyle on his own! He loves the water and it wouldn’t have improved without your Work and compassionate to teach. Thank you,

Jennifer, Nicky and family.
