Derek Grabast thankful for help

Someday, I will walk up to my mommy and daddy and say “I love you.”
Although this sounds simple, it is my dream to do this. I just turned 9 years old this summer.
I am taking a journey half way around the world to find my voice and legs. My mommy and I are getting on a plane in Wichita, and we will land in Beijing, China. That is where my real story will begin.
Mommy will tell it for me, for now.
But before we leave, I want to let each and every one of you know, that this journey, this adventure, my one chance, is possible because of you. I could never thank you enough. I could never show how much it means to me. But please know, that me and my family are forever grateful for this chance.
