Stacy from Georgia

Im Stacy. My husband of five years was in a work related accident which has made him disable. This has been a huge issue for our family. He was the bread winner and with him getting injured it made me have to pick up slack and no longer be a stay at home mom of our two kids. My husband is in a wheelchair most of the time. He is learning to walk slowly but it is a struggle for him and us daily. Never take the little things for granted because my husband is proof that it can be taken away in a minute when you least expect it.
