Due to the risk of infection, we were told by the doctors that Kaden would not be able to swim in a public pool, however swimming would be a major benefit to Kaden’s recovery. When we returned from Sydney & took Liam to his swimming lessons, our heart would break watching Kaden’s tears flow, as he had to sit & watch Liam, do something that he wasn’t allowed to. In the end we choose to take Liam out of swimming lessons.
Lee & I discussed ways that we could try & get Kaden back into swimming, in a safe environment. We decided that we would enquire about the cost of having a pool installed in our own yard. We knew that this was not a cheap option,but as parents you do everything you can for your children, so we set out on getting a quote done. It was at this point that we met Mike from Tropical Pools! He came out to our home & discussed the details of a pool & this is where he met Kaden.
Little did we know, just how taken back he would be with Kaden’s story. He spoke to his wife Niamh & they set about making a plan to make Kaden’s dream come true. This massive suprise was revealed, one morning when we were doing an interview with Chantelle from Today Tonight. To say Lee, the boys & I were overwhelmed is an understatement. There were plenty of tears of joy, when we were told that they wouldn’t only be making a pool for Kaden, they would be creating an amazing back yard blitz! Over the next few months, we met more & more people who so generously donated their time & materials to make this project the success it is today. The teams worked together at our home every spare minute they had. It was awesome to watch the pool being created & the landscaping taking place.
To the incredible team at Tropical Pools, their contractors & all the suppliers, a massive thank you! I struggle to find the words to express the gratitude for what you have done for our sons Kaden & Liam. We are overwhelmed with your generosity which is simply out of this world. To say we’ll be forever grateful is an understatement, thank you for putting the biggest smile ever back on Kaden’s face ❤️
