In Focus: Time with Mom

During my visit last week to Marklund’s Hyde Center, a home for severely disabled adults in Geneva, I was amazed at the amount of volunteers who were there to help the clients as they participated in Arbor Day festivities. 

The Elburn Countryside Fire Protection District was there giving residents the opportunity to use a fire hose, and there were carnival games, including a ball toss area. 

That’s where I found Becky Stewart of Elburn and her family. Not only were they there as volunteers, but also as a way to spend time with their son and brother. Tyler Stewart, 20, seemed somewhat agitated at one point, so Becky scooped him up out of his wheelchair and he curled into his mom’s arms.
