"Angels and Quilt Pieces...Our Journey with a Katrina Family"
by Stephanie Ehmen
Come on a Journey with us . . .
September 2005, in the after-math of Hurricane Katrina, we had no idea that we were about to embark on an unexpected journey. Wanting to help in a hands-on way, we volunteered at a church sponsored shelter. Here we would meet Mr. & Mrs. Thornton from New Orleans and their seven precious children. By the end of our volunteer week, we had earned the trust of Mr. Thornton and the children had found a place of refuge in our arms.
Our journey over the following months has changed our lives forever. As the days, weeks and months progressed, the Thornton’s told us their extraordinary story in bits and pieces. We are telling our story through our own eyes, what we saw, heard and witnessed.
Come on this journey with us and experience the joys and the heartaches, as we learned how to help others in need. It will make you laugh and cry; it will make you angry and warm your heart. Meet all the “Angels” who helped us out along the way by giving this family “pieces for their quilts”.
