Rick’s sister. Mother, grandmother, wife. This work, and my family’s experience leading up to it, has taught me that our afflictions are inseparable from our gifts, and that we all have value to offer the world. My heart bursts with gratitude for the people I’ve met through this work, including everyone on this page, all of our adopters and volunteers (inside and out), and especially my husband, Jacob, who inspires me daily.
Founder of AI, and inspiration for everything we do. We love you Rick. Welcome Home.
Mom to Rick and Melissa. Cheerleader since 2014. Librarian.
