Dolphin Aid America
Dear Dolphin Aid,
I would like to express my thanks to Dolphin Aid for sponsoring my familys
trip to the Curacao Dolphin Therapy Center. We had a wonderful two weeks
On the first day of therapy Nicholas was nervous and uncertain. During
therapy he progressed from the first day where he warily first touched
a dolphin with the therapists help to his last swim where Nicholas
smilingly swam with his dolphin friend without the therapists assistance.
During the therapy period, Nicholas worked with his therapy team on making
and communicating choices. At first Nicholas would just give any answer,
but as therapy progressed20he appeared to put more thought into the answers
he gave because he was learning that the choice he made determined what
he would get to do next with the therapy team. The therapy team worked
with our whole family to help us learn new and improved ways to live and
learn with Nicholas. The time our family had together on the island, without
the pressures of everyday activities and commitments, rejuvenated us.
The travel arrangements made by Dolphin Aid worked perfectly for us. We
had great accommodations and great flights. The transportation to and
from the airport was excellent. Everyone we encountered was helpful and
nice. Dolphin Suites hotel in Curacao is a wonderful hotel and we had
a splendid two weeks there.
Without Dolphin Aids sponsorship none of this would have been possible
and we are very grateful to Dolphin Aid.
