"The touch of your hand over my hand has taught me strength and hope. When we were told our daughter Jaycee had a visual impairment, we were scared and unsure what to do. When we finally found out about VIPS, we made the tough decision to leave our friends and family in our small town in Minnesota. Through VIPS we've found another amazing family that has taught our daughter so many amazing things beyond our belief!"

-Dani, Mother of Jaycee
