REDWOOD
October 5, 2010

My sister was born with CP in 1967. Back then, the doctors simply encouraged my parents to admit her to an institution and let her live her life there. This enraged Mom and Dad and they set out to find a place that would challenge my sister to the fullest extent of her abilities. For many years, they saw her through a series of special schools and special teachers. It wasn't until she turned 21 that they found Redwood. It was there that they discovered a place that allowed my sister not only to be challenged, but that allowed her to grow to the fullest extent of her abilities. My sister is healthy and happy and spends her day in a loving, caring, positive environment where she is looked after and guided to be the best that she can be. Mom and Dad always tell whoever will listen that they view Redwood as a God-send and that if it wasn't for that organization and the wonderful people who work there that they do not know what they would have done. A wonderful side-bar to this story is that Redwood also has a department devoted to childhood development. We were fortunate to have my niece and nephew be able to attend the daycare there. We are all very happy that Redwood is able to provide such a great place for so many members of our family to feel safe and loved.
