"It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving." ~Mother Theresa~
Gardens have a profound way of nurturing us, providing a sense of sanctuary and joy.
"After Michael and Camille married, they started adopting children with Down syndrome, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy. Some had autism, developmental disabilites and extreme facial deformations. People would drop them off on the Geraldis’ doorstep with nothing but a note—or no word at all. Eighteen adoptions and three healthy birth children later, Camille and Dr. Mike, as he’s called, were running a nonprofit, then called the Up With Down Syndrome Foundation.
The children were surpassing doctors’ expectations—and their own life expectancies. In 1986 The name was changed to The Possible Dream Foundation to more accurately reflect the Foundation’s breadth in special needs individuals."
In 2014, as a token of our gratitude to the Geraldi Family, Kids for Mother Earth built a butterfly sanctuary at a Possible Dream Foundation home in Miami where Dr. Geraldi's children can connect with nature.
