Posted on November 17, 2015Great news! After receiving some donations off-line, I now have enough to get my trike. We decided to go ahead and get mine before the carrier so that Ethan and I can ride around the neighborhood together.
Because of the off-line donations I reduced the goal amount for the fundraiser and now we are just working on funding for the car carrier.
I want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen for Ethan and I. I really can't express how happy you have helped to make us and how much we have been touched by the generosity of everyone who contributed even if they were only able to share the word about the fundraiser.
We have loved watching Ethan ride and have been thrilled that he has learned how to ride it so quickly. We are still working on changing gears. He frequently comes to us and ASKS to ride his bike which is a major breakthrough in his communication because initiating requests is a significant goal in his therapy plans.
Again, thank you so much and we will be sure to post videos in the Spring of him racing for Special Olympics. I have a feeling he is going to be a real competitor ;)

Posted on November 14, 2015Ethan is really loving his trike and it's making me look forward to getting mine so that I can ride with him soon. Thanks again to everyone for their support and sharing this fundraiser. Can't tell you how much of a difference these will make for all of us.

Posted on November 8, 2015Ethan has asked to ride his #AMBUCS #Amtryke almost every day since he got it. Safe to say that he loves it.
He has done a great job mastering it, even has the parking breaks completely figured out.
One frustrating thing for him has been getting stuck when he gets off the sidewalk and today I was able to get him to understand how to push it while steering to get it back on again and later when he got stuck again he got right off and did just what I showed him which was awesome to see :)
Sure glad that I have my scooter or I wouldn't be able to let him ride so much but can't wait to get my trike ;)
