A New Home For Baby Izaiah

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

A special housewarming for a family that has had its share of adversity. The Wallis family was given the keys to their new home up in Vista Wednesday. It's all for, Baby Izaiah, who was 18 months old, when he and his grandfather were run over by a drunk teenager in October of 2010. Izaiah was left with brain damage and paralyzed from the chest down.

A year later, he and his family were forced to move out of their home because of black mold. His father, Jacob, told 10News...he couldn't be more grateful to the 64 local companies, and the volunteers, who made the new home possible.

The six-week endeavor to renovate the rundown and rat infested home was the idea of, Linda Van Kessler, of Passion for Kids. The house is barrier free, with stepless entries, wider doorways and even a backyard pool for Izaiah's water therapy. The Wallis' move into their new home Thursday.
