Our letter is to support the Wood Lane School levy. Have you ever had the opportunity to vote additional funds for an agency that has done such a great job stretching money they were given to work with 13 years ago? They've used our money wisely and deserve our support now.
Our family has much more than a passing acquaintance with Wood county social services and Wood Lane School. Our youngest daughter was born with Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Within the first month after she was born, we were contacted by a nurse who came out to our house and helped us to connect with services needed for Christy. For the next 34 years, they were a very welcome and beneficial part of our lives. Christy loved them all and considered many of them her special friends. They were with us every step of the way until Christy died two years ago. And the Wood Lane folks have not disappeared, we still see or hear from them occasionally just asking how we're doing. Christy's quality of life was much enhanced because of their involvement.
Many of the loving, caring people who work at Wood Lane have been there for several years, some for decades. When compassionate, sensitive people stay on their same jobs like that, it's not because they're making big bucks, but because they love the people they teach and take care of and they have a rapport with their co-workers. It's truly a necessity for us to keep this great resource. It would really be a shame to not do our best to keep and support a treasure like Wood Lane. No one ever knows when someone they love may need county social services and support.
We thank God they were always there for us and enthusiastically support this levy.
