Daniel's Journey

A story by Daniels mother - Who would have guessed that after being born at 25 weeks premature, that Daniel would one day make the swim team? While we may not have guessed it, we are living this beautiful reality. He is a tall, spunky and confident young teenager. The confidence that he exudes wasn’t seen until he started taking swim lessons at the North Decatur YMCA. He was taught and nurtured by teachers. And he was encouraged to be his best by the South Dekalb teachers. Daniel reminds us when he has practice and ensures that we get there on time. But this confidence, this skill and this excitement for a sport would not have been made possible without InCommunity (formerly known as Georgia Support & Solutions). This organization has funded for our son’s swim lessons for 3 years and is the reason that he was able to develop the skills necessary to make the competitive swim team in August, 2017! That’s right! Daniel is a competitive swimmer now. It is because of programs like this that our lives were changed for the better.
