On February 9, 2012 the lives of my family changed.
My son became a quadriplegic after a snowboarding accident.
After a year of being by my son’s side in the hospitals, rehabilitation centers, I had to go back to work.
It seemed in my heart that what I did for a living was so insignificant in the lives of people. I struggled, and I kept working in design and was unhappy. I wasn’t doing what I wanted to be doing, just doing what I was good at and could pay the huge bills I had coming in every month. After losing the boys Dad to cancer a year before the accident, I couldn’t afford to be what I wanted to be…just a Mom.
I wondered how I could use this gift I have in design, and use it to help others. And as this website is being launched, I have found the answer. Living in this world of loss and fear and wanting to go home has opened my eyes to an incredible need.
Every single person wants to go HOME. We want something to be normal in the insanity. We miss our beds, our kitchens, our bathroom, our gardens, our dogs and cats and our LIFE.
It took me 8 months to get my son home. I can tell you I still tear up remembering when I couldn’t…
We live this life, and my hope is that my designs will bring YOU home.
