Our number one principle was that no family would ever have to worry about cost when it came to getting a hand for their child. Everything we were doing was based solely off of donations. To this day, none of our recipients have had to pay a dime. We’ve covered the cost through donations; materials, shipping, printer repairs, everything.
I’ve lost count, but we have built roughly a dozen hands for recipients all around the Country; Michigan, California, Arizona, Indiana, Georgia, Florida, and we even built one and shipped it to a little boy in the UK. I had found my calling, my passion, and my purpose. I knew what I wanted to do with my life.
Most importantly, I have finally been given the answer to the longing question “why”. Why was my son born this way? I wholeheartedly believe that Carter was born with a limb difference because with it, and because of it, we can make the world a better place for other children with “diff-abilities”. We were able to take a negative and turn it into something so very positive. I am proud of the both of us for being able to do that.
