If you know Estella Sims, you’d agree she’s a remarkable woman. Despite being in her sixties with physical ailments of her own, Estella committed her life to raising three adopted children with special needs. The Sims’ Georgia home has always been filled with affection and plenty of love for Antavious, Shanika, and Ashley, but their house lacked many of the necessary amenities that make life easier for people with disabilities.
Enter Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), a non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, that creates dream room and home makeovers for children with long-term illnesses. SOARD helped transform the Sims family home in order to make space for their medical equipment, make their bathroom wheelchair accessible, and even add on an extra room for a nurse.
Everyday, Estella’s children face challenges including blindness, cerebral palsy, developmental challenges, fetal alcohol syndrome, and chromosomal abnormalities. In their new home, Estella’s family will continue to live and love with more comfort, accessibility, and style.
