Claudette and her
husband Al were shocked. Hours after giving birth to their third son,
Aaron, they were told he had Down Syndrome, a genetic disorder where an
additional chromosome in the DNA make-up result in mental retardation and other
parents committed to providing him with the best services, medical care and
education possible. but most of all they gave him a home full of love.
Claudette worked tirelessly with Aaron to achieve a success from teaching him
how to write the letters of his name to the skills he needed for his first job: washing windows, sweeping floors and cutting grass at
his church. Because of Claudette's patience and perseverance, Aaron at age
16, is a high functioning young man who will be on his own in just 5 years.
Claudy's House will be a natural transition, a haven, for a self-sufficient
young man who can cook, clean and take the bus to work.
"For I know
the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to
harm you, plans to give you hope and future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
