My husband and I are both professionals. Randy is a Forestry Professor for the University of Idaho, and I’m a Curriculum Director for the Moscow School District. We raised three exceptional children in this home while I taught First Grade at Orofino Elementary School and Randy served as the County Extension Agent in Orofino. In 2009, I was in a head-on collision, and my life changed dramatically. The initial prognosis was to amputate both legs at the knee, and the injuries to my brain would keep me from ever returning to my love of teaching in the classroom; however, by the grace of God, that was not how my story ended. Following 37 reconstructive surgeries on my face and both feet, I learned to walk again, the injuries to my brain healed, and I went on to obtain my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This house serves as a beautiful reminder of how the fantastic community of Orofino supported our family during my recovery. Local construction workers poured a ramp for my wheelchair, knocked out walls, and revamped the first-floor layout so that rooms would be more accessible. They raised money to help with medical expenses and sent cards and words of encouragement to Randy and me. So there is a special place in my heart for “this old house.” Some of the most challenging moments in my life occurred here, but some of the most beautiful moments in my life occurred here too. Because I was in a wheelchair, I couldn’t climb the stairs to the second floor or the basement. I was determined to get my life back and not allow my circumstances to keep me from doing what I had done in the past. Therefore, I decided that if I couldn’t walk, I would crawl, and in the morning, when it was time to wake my son for school, I would strap on my knee pads and crawl to his bedroom in the basement. I learned to vacuum on my knees, make beds, sweep, mop, answer the door on my knees, and it was when I prayed on my knees that God gave me the strength to fight! I learned that the only obstacles I faced in life were those obstacles I perceived in my mind. Five years after my accident, my husband and I started a significant remodeling of “this old house.” We did all of the work ourselves, and it took us a few years to complete, but we are so very proud of the outcome! This home is so beautiful and peaceful that we decided that we wanted to share it with others. So if you need peace and tranquility, we hope that you will come and be our guest!
