Paw Prints and Miracles
"Be the change you want to see in the world." -Mahatma Ghandi
While our careers have blessed us, we have never forgotten the lessons of our childhoods and how big a difference can be made in the lives of others if we just raise a hand to help.
We both believe that while each person can be strong standing on their own there is much greater strength when we stand together as one.
With Lawrence's support, Lisa takes our dogs Boo, Dante, and Porthos to visit children in schools, libraries, and special needs classrooms in addition to seniors in nursing homes.
Lisa has been able to impact the lives of hundreds of children and seniors in need in our area. However, for one little boy, Boo's help was close to a miracle. A selective mute, he didn't speak to anyone until he met Boo and it wasn't until that meeting with Boo that his mother heard her son's voice aloud for the first time in all his six years. When he turned to his mother and yelled "I love Boo!" he confirmed to us all that we're at our best when we act to help others.
We would love to pass this sense of generosity and the desire to make the world a better place to the child that comes into our lives.
