Facing Your Fears
By Patrycja Domurad
It was all adrenaline and excitement up until the door of the plane opened at 14,000 feet. There was a lump in my throat and pounding in my head as I watched one of the more experienced skydivers do a solo jump out of the plane, by hanging to the door frame and flipping out backward. I can close my eyes right now and remember vividly the moment when my tandem partner edged me to the door, engines buzzing so loud I could barely think. But when we jumped out of the plane, it was euphoric.
Skydiving is one of those experiences that sound crazy when you think about them too long and hard. The thing about skydiving is it can become an incredibly empowering experience when you face your fears and just do it.

Dreams Take Flight For Hunter
by Nicole Stong

What an experience! We had no idea what we were in for when we got the call that Hunter was being invited to go on a trip of a lifetime. Hunter was so excited when he found out that he was going to Walt Disney World for the day, he told everyone at every chance he got! This went on for months as we waited for the big day to arrive.  

Finally, the time to head to Toronto for the pre-trip festivities had come. We loaded up the car and headed out, not knowing what really awaited us at the hotel.
