The Long Journey

photo-1534330207526-8e81f10ec6fcThe journey of Hope House has been a long one, and we are still in the early stages.

We have experienced deep loss. We have sat in pits of disorienting darkness. We have felt the joy of being surrounded of friends and have been annoyed by their presence at times. We’ve seen sunrises and butterflies that remind us of life and hope. We’ve wrestled with doubts, anger, and faith. We’ve prayed, we’ve cursed, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried.

We’ve felt horribly alone, even when people have been around. We’ve pushed away people we love. We’ve blamed ourselves. And we’ve glimpsed beauty among ashes.

And we’ve dreamed. We’ve dreamed of a place where parents like us can step away from their everyday lives and retreat to a beautiful setting to relax and heal. They can’t step away from their grief; we know it is always present. But we can provide a brief respite as parents and families struggle into a new normal.

We invite you to partner with us. It is a long journey, but could you walk a few steps with us? We hope to break ground in 2019. To find out more and get involved, visit our campaign page.

Thank you.
