Home at Last – Kim and Karma’s story

“It’s amazing to think about the amount of changes that they made to make sure the house was suitable for Karma.”

“Since being home and having the other kids to interact with, she’s progressed so much. I feel excitement and joy and just so proud.”

How being home helped Karma in other areas of her life

Kim brought her young family together in one happy home. Since moving home, Karma has been blossoming in her health and education.


“We signed the lease on 23 December and Karma was home for Christmas Eve.” Kim


“While she was in hospital… she was developmentally delayed. Since being home… she has progressed so much.” Kim


“She’s started school this year in kindergarten and she’s doing really well.” Kim
