I met the Darrow family when my daughter was 18 months old in the Autumn of 2017. I signed us up for a kinder music class and within the first few classes it was clear to me that our family had an immediate connection with 2 other families there, the Darrow’s included. They have since expanded their family, as have we, and they continue to be exceptional people that I just want to keep sharing life with.
Raising a family is hard, and I have always admired how the Darrows seem to be at ease and how they prioritize each other and those close to them. They are kind, patient, genuine, and are always happy to lend a helping hand. They are often there to offer support and bring food after welcoming a new child, gave me breastfeeding supplies and activities for my daughter while doing so, saved items for me to clothe my son in until he is practically going to be 4. Best of all, our children play together and they offer great company and joy.
It is also heartbreaking to share that The Darrow’s lost their house and most of their belongings in the Glass Fire this September of 2020. Luckily they are safe and were also able to save their dog. But they lost their home and sanctuary and their future plans. I want to help by simply raising funds that they can use towards whatever path opens ahead for them. Please help me in supporting this loving family to move forward with the slightest bit more ease.
