Surprise Bathroom Remodel for a Special Family
Meet the Law family!
So now that the cat’s out of the bag we can share the fun and adventures we had with this amazing family.
As a friend said recently, this family is an inspiration to so many people in our community. They are shining examples of doing the right thing, even when it’s uncomfortable. They put others waaaaay before themselves. They spread love, not hate, inclusion not separation. They love and love hard.
Bubba and Amanda Law are Bossier natives and began their life together as a blended family of 6. Over 15 years ago, they made the decision to begin fostering children, and become Volunteers for Youth Justice
During these years, they have opened their home and hearts to many children, freely giving their love and support while raising their own children who lovingly welcomed each child.
When twin littles, came into their world and up for adoption, the Laws knew immediately what they wanted to do and they both became a Law.
The same feelings came upon them when another little boy blessed their home and years later a precious little girl came into their lives and up for adoption, bringing the Law family total to 10.
When we realized one of their two Bossier City bathrooms was on the fritz, we contacted our friends, teams and remodeling trades to see if we could help make their lives a bit more convenient. I can attest, when you have many children in your midst, especially embracing children with medical conditions, a bathroom renovation is low, low, low on the priority list. Our entire team were 100 percent on board.
When we learned that another client of ours was also a foster family, it inspired us to learn more about our local children at risk and in need and what we could do to help with the very little time we had. We were connected with three amazing organizations whose sole focus is helping children who are transitioning in and out of foster care. Y’all, these folks are angels on earth: Volunteers of Youth Justice, Court Appointed Special Advocates , and Geaux Bags.
Back to the bathroom transformation… When we got the green light from our entire team, we had to figure out a way to design a space that everyone would love. We recruited one of the oldest daughters, Brianna, for some undercover research. She asked her mother, if she could have her dream bathroom what would it look like. BINGO! Mom sent Brianna inspiration pictures and Brianna sent them to us. Now we had a clear picture of what we were going to do and found the exact tiles Mom loved.
But something funny happened, Mom called me to ask if I could give her an estimate to fix her bathroom. Uh, oh. Now what?
I played dumb and told her I would happy to.
When it was time to go over her estimate for repairs, little did she know it would be a full remodel and it would be absolutely FREE. Now, I don’t like making people cry, but we all loved that we could solve one of this family’s major problems and we felt the relief of this burden in the room.
We hope you enjoy our video of the remodel and hope you stay to the very end to learn what these local angels are doing for those children in need right in our backyards.
Thank you everyone for your support and spreading the love of this fun project. See you soon!
