Jacob is speechless, in awe of the majestic creatures breaking the ocean’s surface. Watching whales in the wild is the highlight of Jacob’s wish to go on a cruise to Alaska. This wish is meaningful to his entire family of eight.
They enjoy a tour of the ship, arcade money from the crew and even special snacks with a nice note from the concierge in their room. Each family member has a favorite moment, including seeing mountains for the first time. Jacob’s mother says, “his favorite part of the trip was some of the independence we granted him on board!” Jacob is so happy to meet new friends at the ship’s Teen Club. His renewed independence, and the feeling that he no longer lives in isolation have lifted his spirits. Every detail of the trip is sweet, thoughtful and well-planned. The family escapes its fears and just enjoys the time together experiencing Alaska and relaxing on the ship.
