Lance's Journal: Quinn's House, Nov. 7

Susan and John Otte were very happy with their cute little house in south Lincoln. Until their daughter Quinn experienced some major complications in the hospital.

Quinn ended up needing a new wheelchair and a modified house.
The search was on and 50 houses later, the Otte's were still unable to find a suitable home for Quinn's special needs. And that's where fate took over.

This is a house being built with hammers and love. Susan says, "This is exciting and overwhelming and humbling all at the same time. The way this all got started is that Barb started talking to people she talked to Greg who fell in love with Quinn and he got Ken and Delray on board and then this is what we got."

The construction of Quinn's specially modified home has been a collaborative effort of hundreds of people graciously donating their time and money. Susan says, "The only thing I was worrisome of is that we would feel pitied upon and that is the last thing that we feel, we feel so much love and support and it's just been amazing."

Quinn's dad John says, Without their support it wouldn't give her the opportunity to be that great person that she's developing into."

The Otte's are still searching for assistance in finishing Quinn's house. In particular, the $20,000 elevator. If you would donate to this wonderful outreach...Contact the Home Builders Association of Lincoln at 402-423-4225.
