Abram is a 9-year-old boy who loves to swim. Abram loves to swim so much that when he was asked what his one true wish would be, he said to have a pool of his own someday. To no surprise, Abram was beside himself when he was told that his wish was coming true.

He was so ecstatic that he began drawing the project plans for his pool. In his plans, he detailed his step-by-step “How to Make a Swimming Pool” project plan. His plan even included a water sprayer to create a fantastic experience for him and his friends.

Although the process took some time, Abe and his parents thought everyone was wonderful to work with. They were very grateful to Make-A-Wish® for granting Abe’s one true wish. His parents felt that this pool was not only going to give their son a chance to relax and have fun, but was also a way to bring the entire family together.

On a hot summer day, Abe saw his project plan come to life. He jumped into his pool for the first time and finally had one that he could call his own. Abe’s parents told

Make-A-Wish representatives that he swims almost every day and invites his friends over for “pool parties” all the time.

Abe said that his pool is “awesome” and that he and his family can’t thank Make-A-Wish supporters and volunteers enough for granting his one true wish.
