Finally, it is a stroll down a familiar sidewalk for the Grommesh family. After an unforgettable week, the Grommeshes spend the day in more Extreme Makeover interviews. Tired and worn out, they prepared to call this house their home.
ADAIR GROMMESHMOORHEAD: “I sensed instant relief. When I went in and there were no barriers for Garrett. It was the most beautiful house. It does not look therapeutic. It looks warm and inviting.”
As the limo pulled up the home Sunday, the Grommeshes had no idea what the house looked like. It is who came that moved them to tears.
BILL GROMMESHMOORHEAD: “It is a once in a lifetime experience. When we stepped out and we had the support of the community, it was fantastic.”
“It was so surreal and unreal that the community came out and did this for us. This is incredible. We are so blessed.”
The family cannot discuss what is inside the home, just to say.
GARRETT GROMMESHMOORHEAD: “It is beautiful. I can get to everything.”
And now begins this life changing event for the organization Hope Inc and the family behind it. Garrett says one of the best parts of the trip to the Bahamas: No mosquitoes, until they returned home.
