Guest Story: The Schurman Family

Lucy-and-extened-HH-fmailyThe Schurmans were placed with Harvey and Pam in December 2012, shortly before Lucy had her esophageal atresia (EA) repaired surgically. As is usual with EA patients after surgery, Lucy had to be sedated and temporarily paralyzed to give her body time to heal and grow. “It was tough to just see her totally immobile,” Jeana recalls. “Having a place to call home, take a shower and sleep comfortably when you couldn’t sit by a hospital bed anymore, was a blessing.”
