Meet Cooper!

Meet Cooper! Cooper is 8 years old with low functioning autism. He recently received his Dream come True Trip to the Central Florida Theme Parks where he was able to go to 3 of the Central Florida Theme Parks and even Kennedy Space Center! 

 

“This trip was every bit as magical as it was supposed to be and I am so Thankful. We laughed, ate junk food, rode rides, watched parades, acted like wizards, met our favorite characters, ate more junk food, learned a lot about our space program, pretended we were pirates, slept in a spaceship bed, played mini golf and ate more junk food. We lost complete track of the days and the time and just HAD FUN!! It was just what we needed.” – Codi, Cooper’s mom.
