"I am the adoptive mother of twins born prematurely with disabilities. When Anthony was two years old, I enrolled him in swim lessons at the Lighthouse of Houston. Recreation therapists worked with Anthony, who was not yet walking, to teach him all the pieces that must come together for one to swim. Not only did Anthony learn to swim, but he also took his first steps three months after starting swim lessons. He was 27 months old. To this day, I attribute Anthony’s ability to walk to the recreation therapy he received in the pool at the Lighthouse of Houston. "
