WOOOO HOOOO! Great News for Madi!

Madi has an Amtryke at home, which she LOVES and rides often, but I was hoping for one for her to have at preschool as well.  The preschool Madi goes to on Thursdays, and will soon be attending twice a week, always has tricycles out for the kids to ride.  Madi can never ride them, though, because she needs a trike she can work with her arms, not her legs.  Whenever I've gone to help, Madi has really wanted to ride them, but it just doesn't work.  Since I can't very well tote her, her chair, her supplies, AND her Amtryke to and from preschool when she goes (since she has about 2 1/2 years of preschool ahead).   I decided to write up a "Wish" for Madi on the Amtryke site, stating that it would be used for preschool for her.  Our wish was granted in FULL!!  They are sending Madi a trike for preschool!  It will have hand petals, foot blocks, a little strap to keep her knees in, a helmet, and a seat belt, just like she needs!  We are SO excited!!  Now Madi will be able to cruise with all of her friends!  YEAH!

A HUGE HUGE thank-you to the Texas Ambucs Chapter, who donated this trike for Madi.  We are so thankful for you!

If anyone would like to donate to this very cool program, or would like to submit a wish for their child, you can go to www.ambucs.org, or e-mail ambucs.@ambucs.org
