Always thankful :)

By Cortney

I have learned so very much about compassion , patience and forgiveness and determination from working with consumers with developmental disabilities. We have a young woman living with us and she teaches me something new every day. She is signing up to try out for Special Olympics bowling and to help coach next year. I am so thankful to have a career I can see my time and effort being put directly to work on a daily basis . Now that we are looking for a roommate , I am even more excited to be able to help a second person . :) Everyone is truly a blessing.

About Cortney: I am an extended family provider in mosaic Omaha Nebraska . I absolutely adore my job , we have an adult with a developmental disability live in our home to gain independence.
