Victoria’s Adventure

Victoria and family at Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MDVictoria and her family also traveled on a dolphin adventure in 2001. They visited Inner Harbor and the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD together during that summer.

Dear Dillings and The Hillary Fund:

What a wonderful time we had on the trip to Inner Harbor, we are very grateful that Victoria was chosen as one of the recipients for this year. Both children enjoyed themselves immensely. Although Jacob wasn’t sure he wanted to stay overnight. (This was the first time he was away from home.)

Victoria was thrilled with the aquarium and loved the dolphin show. The crowds didn’t seem to bother her that much and the indoor swimming pool was an extra treat for her. She just loves the water. A matter of fact she is starting tomorrow at Easter Seals for the aquatic therapy once a week.

The food was excellent and the weather cooperated superbly. It didn’t really rain until the day we came home. Since it was raining we skipped the zoo, but honestly I thought it may have been too much activity for the kids. They along with Matt and I were very tired.

We are extremely thankful for your generosity in sending us. This was the first family trip we have ever had. Our trips only have consisted of hospital stays since Victoria and Jacob have been born. Both children were admitted after birth to Geisinger Medical Center and then many admissions for Victoria in Pittsburgh.

Thank you once again,

Matt, Brenda, Victoria, Jacob
