- from Christy
In 2010, we decided to put our house up for sale. The fact that it sold in about four weeks made us feel certain God was making His will very clear for our family. We decided to rent a house in Graham for a year until we figured out exactly where we needed to be. In 2011, our realtor, who happens to be a dear friend of ours from church, helped us find the perfect home. It was the only house on the market that met our criteria for safety. Josiah and Jalen are both runners. Runner is a term used in the Autism community to refer to a child on the spectrum that has the urge to roam or take off running away from caregivers or away from areas of safety. These children lack the understanding of danger, and, in the case of our boys, they often run to danger.
We needed a home that was only one story (the fewer steps the better), that had a main living area where I could keep an eye on the boys at all times, and that had four bedrooms all located near each other. We also needed a good sized back yard that was fully enclosed with a fence. God opened the door for us to purchase our home quickly. Several volunteers from our church and school helped us clean and paint the house and move all of our belongings. We have been amazed to see how God has provided for us.
