Something amazing happened when the package arrived. Jason sat down on the floor and started to play with the fire trucks. His mother wrote he was more than happy to lay in the bed on his fire truck sheets with all the fire trucks around him in the bed. Jason was finally interested in something. Of course he pushed the siren and horn buttons a lot and would make a shrilling sound when he heard the noise. Jason even clapped which was a first for him. When Jason's mother told us how wonderful he was doing.I wrote to their local fire company about the little boy .We learned later Jason had been invited to the fire company to see the fire trucks up close and personal. Jason walked(not ran)around each truck petting and touching them. It was the calmest day Jason's mom had ever had she wrote since his birth .It is our hope that Jason will continue to flourish in learning with the help of the fire trucks. Who would of ever thought that one parade could of made such an impact on this little boys life.
And to be honest we still think of Jason everytime we hear the sirens or horn blast on the fire trucks in Whiting where we live.So if you think one donation or act of kindness cant make a difference think again.Here is living proof it can.
