New England Farmhouse


What Houzz contributors are saying:

But I was so thankful. We were at the beginning of a long and exhausting journey diagnosing a variety of Christopher's disabilities. He was a late walker — taking his first steps at 16 months — but once he started, he went straight to running and didn't stop for years. The summer he was 2 going on 3 years old, I spent the majority of each of my days chasing him around our house — literally. When the baby, my daughter Lydia, was napping, I tried to garden. I kept Christopher right beside me with his own little tools, but if I looked down for a second he was off. As soon as I noticed, I would guess which way he went and run after him. He was usually enough ahead of me to be turning a corner just before I turned the one behind, so he was always out of sight, a scenario like a horrific version of Tom and Jerry. He had a hearing loss, but I frantically shouted his name until I caught him. One day I made it all the way around the house and thought, "This is it: I have to call 911," when someone called my name. Coming around the corner was Becky holding Christopher's hand."I was upstairs, but I heard you call 'Christopher' one too many times," she said. "Is everything all right?" shouted another neighbor, an older woman, down the block. She was standing on her front porch at the ready. Clearly she too had heard me calling too many times."We're all right!" I shouted back. "He's right here. Thank you!" She waved and then went back inside.I know it was a small thing for each of those women, but I rank their actions up there as some of the kindest things anyone has ever done. They meant the world to me. That was 15 years ago, and I still can't tell this story without crying.
