"We knew the water itself was making a difference as far as their pain levels, their attitude, everything," she said.

However, during the cold months, the boys cannot use the pool, so Melody hopes to make some conversions to the pool to allow year-round use. In order to do this, the cost will amount to at least $30,000.

The LaFountains have many other plans they would like to see happen, including a new counter for the boys, so Melody can work on their fine motor skills, special chairs so the boys can be buckled in while she works with them, and a solar panel to increase the pool temperature for the boys.

"I want them to be as normal as possible, and that may never happen," Melody said. "But, if I don't make the things available to them, or try, I may never know."
