While extremely rewarding, being a parent is no easy task, especially if you’re a good one. Our Extra-Ordinary Moms (EOM) program recognizes homeless moms who are utilizing resources and doing their best in raising their children; as we look ahead to Father’s Day this week, we thought it would be nice to acknowledge a dad that really rocks.

A few years ago, I read a quote that stuck with me: “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.”

Those words have forced me to speak up and speak out about the things I’m curious or passionate about. And Extra-Ordinary Birthdays (EOB) and the Extra-Ordinary Reader (EOR) program are two things about which I’m extremely passionate.

Not long ago I ran into a friend (Founder/Executive Director of Extra-Ordinary Birthdays), and she asked what I’ve been doing. I said I’ve been quilting. I pulled out my device and showed her a few pictures. Anyone who knows Schinnell knows what I mean when I say “you could see the wheels turning.” She said in so many words… a quilt is just what her Extra-Ordinary Moms (EOM) need. I could not have agreed with her more.
