“When Emmie was 1, she loved helping her daddy clean the pool! As she does everything her daddy does she leaned over and put her hands in the water to splash and clean them off. As soon as she did she leaned a little too far and fell in. After my husband jumped in fully clothed he was able to pull her to safety.
Even though we were right there the whole time it was the most scary thing that had ever happened. When Emmie turned 2, she started swimming with Yaya! Yes, it was hard to watch sometimes but I knew that it could help save her life one day. After a couple of weeks swimming with Yaya, Emmie was once again playing by the steps and fell in. When I got to her she was on her back, staying afloat and making her way back to the steps, all on her own!! I knew then swimming at Yaya’s fishes saved her life and the best decision we had ever made.”
