Dear Wood County Voters,
Tim has a job he loves, a mischievous sense of humor, and a wish list for his upcoming 49th birthday. This is a very different picture than was painted for my parents when my brother was born. Doctors recommended he be "put away" immediately. They said he would never learn to walk or talk, and would be lucky if he lived to be a teenager.
The Bomeli family is just one of many which have experienced the miracle of seeing an event which appeared to be a tragedy turn into one of the most wonderful blessings we could have imagined. Wood Lane has played a huge role in turning those bleak predictions into a success story.
The Wood Lane program was there to help Tim develop his mental and physical abilities. It was there as a support group for my parents. It continues to teach Tim life skills and arranges suitable gainful employment. Most valuable of all, the program offers peace of mind for parents who can take comfort in knowing their child is settled in a safe environment, and will continue to be well cared for throughout his or her life.
Please enable continued success stories by voting yes for the Wood Lane Levy.
Bowling Green native
