When my first daughter was a baby, I became good friends with a woman named Jennifer who also had a baby girl. Her husband was a veteran who had recently returned from Iraq after being severely injured and eventually losing part of his leg.
Jennifer and I spent a lot of time together, having playdates for our daughters and then eventually starting a playgroup together. While our little girls threw tea parties, we spent many hours getting to know each other.
Now, all these years later, she and her family are all very dear to us and feel like part of our family.
Over the years, we’ve seen Jenn’s husband have to deal with a lot of issues because of his disability. Just modifying their home so that he could get around the house took more effort than I would have imagined. Their driveway was very steep and every entrance to the house had stairs, so there was a lot of work that had to be done to make the home accessible. Thankfully, they’ve had a lot of help from family, from friends, and from Wounded Warriors and have been able to transform the house that they love.
Another of their important needs was transportation. Freedom and mobility are things that many of us take for granted, but for our friend, those were luxuries he didn’t have. He needed reliable transportation to get to doctor and therapy appointments. Once he was able to get a wheelchair accessible vehicle, he was able to travel with Jenn wherever and whenever he wanted, just as he’d done before his injury.
