WISH GRANTED - LITTLE GIRL WITH DOWN SYNDROME GETS ONE YEAR OF GYMNASTICS CLASSES PAID BY BIANCA’S KIDS!
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
I was searching for grants to help my little Amelia with her gymnastics classes that I unfortunately cannot afford and could not find any foundation that would be willing to provide this kind of assistance. When I was reading about Bianca from the website history, I though it is wonderful that Bianca had a passion for bringing joy to children because kids with disabilities need it very much.
We are a family of three: Amelia, my son, and myself. In August 2008, my husband brought us here from Belarus, a little country in Eastern Europe. When Amelia was born in 2011, and we found out that she has Down's Syndrome, it split our family.
I would like Amelia to live a full life and try new things, especially things that she enjoys like music and gymnastics. Aim High Academy has Stars of the Future (Special needs class), but SoonerCare (Amelia's medical insurance) will not cover classes like dancing or gymnastics. Even though I spent countless hours on the phone with them, trying to explain that she will learn by watching and copying other students in class, and it is much more important than one on one physical therapy. I strongly believe gymnastics will help her with balance and coordination, strengthen her muscles and build up her immune system, but also she will acquire social skills that will help her find a way in this life and become somebody.
Please, consider helping my little Amelia!
Katerina, I am so happy to advise that we are granting your wish for Amelia! We are paying for one year of classes, the registration fee and for Amelia’s leotard. We know this is going to be great for her!
