"I have never seen such a genuine smile on my son's face, nor seen such immense internal happiness beaming through him. I waited to send this note to see if it was a temporary gift, but it is sticking! The impact is real!"

I looked at my husband and gave him one of my “are we nuts?” looks as we agreed to let her go...

As a parent, I have witnessed the growth and self-confidence these Tours have helped build and the friendships that may never have happened.
