A labor of love, designed by Henry Barlow of Rocky Mountain Concrete this backyard was a professionally planned for a healing, healthy, therapeutic environment. Here, the quality of life for families are empowered by helping parents to know they are not alone.
Parents who devote love and energy raising a child with special needs will run most of their life like a race, with no breaks. Stretched beyond expected limits they daily manage things like tantrums without having a meltdown themselves. Having a child with extra needs deals them situations that regular parents would think were impossible. Sometimes they make decisions with no right answer that pains their hearts and causes them to question everything they thought they knew.
I have never known any parents of special needs children who see themselves as the heroes they are, but they will champion their child as one. Every milestone, no matter how seemingly small to some, is a huge accomplishment, a smile, a sentence, a hug. They experience an innate depth of gratitude and awe in everyday miracles.
Having a special needs brother and now a grandmother of two special needs children this lovely space is perfect for children offering extracurricular activities, therapeutic benefits, support and time off for parents.
