Greetings!

Lamb Foundation was blessed for several years when Linda McComas made Lamb her home and place of work here, when she served as Development Director. On the occasion of our anniversary, she asked us to share her thoughts about her transformation at Lamb. Read on for her words and other stories and news from Lamb.

"I could have Faith again; I could Trust again"

Lamb Foundation was blessed for several years when Linda McComas made Lamb her home and place of work, when she served as Development Director. On the occasion of our anniversary, she asked to share these thoughts about her time at Lamb.

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to the Lamb Foundation on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. Lamb was more than a home - it gave me life. Lamb taught me that I could have faith again; that I could trust again.
One problem I have always had with the word "disabled" is that it implies that a disabled person has no "abilities" which is far from the truth. Lamb let me see that I had abilities and could use them to go as far as I wanted.
Linda with friends in Ireland.For me, that meant Ireland. I had traveled to Ireland many times and I love the culture, the history and most of all, the politics. I've always dreamed of living here so I decided to try it for a year. Ireland is about the size of the state of Maine and there are more people living in the 5 boroughs of New York City than live here. I traded in the cost of prescription medications for rent on a small townhouse and went from a for-profit healthcare system to socialized medicine!
As a disabled American, my visa prevents me from working. So I volunteer for the political party Sinn Fein in the party's County Waterford office. I spent my life in health care. Now the people I associate with are politicians or political activists. I do research for the politicians, office work, organize events and coordinate the activity in the office. I'm also on the Cumann (local party branch) officer board and on the office board of the Comhairle Ceantair (County level) officer board. I'm also getting better at Irish Gaelic! I have made new friends as well.
I want to thank Lamb, Donna and Dan, Marianne, Becky, Jenn, Jim and God rest her soul, Bonnie for this life. I may visit the states someday, but I will always live here.

Sincerely,
