Review for Wheel To Walk Foundation, Portland, OR, USA
When I adopted my son I knew that he had many strikes against him including, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Conductive and Neurosensory Hearing losses, fine and gross motor issues, global delays and much more. He is now a very fun-loving, happy eight year old.
Samuel has always had balance problems that have made it impossible for him to balance and pedal a bike. He has a brother who rides his bike like the wind and Samuel always felt left-out. When it was recommended that I contact the Wheels to Walk Foundation in the Portland, Oregon area I immediately did so. Within approximately eight weeks Samuel had a new, adaptive bike that was outfitted with outriggers that enable him to ride just like his brother. He has a new helmet that fits him and just the other day we were able, for the first time in my boys' lives to go on a family bike ride. The boys wanted to keep going and we ended up riding 4.7 miles.
It is with joy that I thank everyone involved with Wheels to Walk for their part in giving my son a very special bike that allows him to feel like the rest of the kids. Without this special foundation Samuel would not have known that joy as there is no way that I could afford to purchase one for him as a single mother who has to stay home with my children due to their issues.
