“Gio’s Garden has made a huge difference in our lives, our marriage, and our son’s well being. Because of Gio’s Garden we no longer have an excuse not to take time for us as a couple. Our son has made new friends and provides a place where he is “in charge.” Gio’s Garden has provided us with a new family where we are welcomed and people who understand what our lives are like. We are grateful everyday for Gio’s Garden.”
