My family spent 5 weeks living at the house. The staff and volunteers did an amazing job making sure that we were safe and had a cheerful, stress free environment. Having other families who are going through the same experiences to talk to was a big help and we keep in touch with the other people we met there. Those weeks awaiting the birth of our Grandson who needed heart surgery were the scariest time of my life. The Ronald McDonald House gave us comfort, friendship and caring at the time we needed it most. We are forever grateful to those who dedicate themselves to taking care of the children and their families.
