Jacob's Bass Boat
Organized by: Karren McIntire
Jacob has his "new-to-me" boat, now! He is so excited! We managed to find a way, but thank you for reading. We had to sell a few things and we have repairs to make, but his happiness is important to us!! There are memories to make, now!

Jacob is an 8 year old little boy. He happens to have ADHD and Aspergers. He tends to be Daddy's little shadow. Our local military base was hosting a fishing rodeo for the children of military members, active or retired. My husband happens to be retired from the U.S. Navy, so we signed up the boys. My husband is an avid fisherman. Wouldn't you just know it that Jacob caught....the fishing bug!?! Now, he wants to fish for everything! He has begged Daddy to take him bass fishing. The best fishing is in places that you can't always reach from shore. My husband has been looking and looking for the perfect fishing boat that fits Jacob's request...MUST have a motor! Lol He has made it clear that he won't be paddling or pedaling! We are a 1 income family with 2 boys that have Autism. Their therapies are our top priority. We would love to bless Jacob with a boat or a fishing trip in a boat. It's lovely to see him so excited about being outdoors. He has suffered from anxiety about bugs for 2 years. Fishing has taken his mind off of his fears.
