We say our olive skinned young man is intense. His eyes full of interest and hours spent building, just about anything. Learning to read became such a challenge that a special school became the solution. Two years after being at the special school, magic began to happen.
This young boy became a young man. This quiet boy with few friends became the popular young man in his grade and loved by many in grades around him. Sports he never wanted to try became sports he loved.
Could sleep away camp be something he could handle, let alone something he liked? Then, the unthinkable happened and sleep away camp became the most important part of this young man’s life, the piece of the puzzle that drew the boy with few words into a world where asking questions is honorable and trying new sports is a passage of summer. This boy of few words can still make you melt with his good looks and fall to your knees with his bear hugs of love but watching him grow and see life through those intense eyes is the best place on earth and no other place I’d rather be!
