"We are extremely greatly for the Special Olympics organization. Since, my family and I have become a part of this great organization,
they have accepted us with warm hugs and a lot of love. Special Olympics has opened doors to a world that we didn't know could exist for Mikale.
We've always told Mikale to never let his disability define his capabilities; and Special Olympics has provided him with the opportunity to grow,
to interact with members of the local community, and to form friendships that will last a lifetime. My husband and I enjoy not only watching Mikale,
but the other athletes have fun and accomplish many of their goals. I would also like to thank Lisa Taylor for her generosity and compassion for our
babies, especially in world that can sometimes view our children as different. We love you Lisa, and thanks for all that you do! "
