I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be one of photographers on the Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I was privileged everyday to be a part of this amazing group of volunteers, all coming from a space in the heart that we rarely see in everyday life. I watched people pull together, I saw laughter, I saw tears, I watched as people pushed through their comfort zones and be rewarded with nothing but a good feeling of being a part of something so big for a family in need, stranger's.
My love and gratitude to Blu Shields, Patrick, Oscar, Kourtny, and the whole family for who you are and what has been done here. To Chiquita and Eddie who trusted me to be creative and get behind the scenes. To every volunteer, this couldn't have happened without you, from the ground clearing, to the roof, for every meal and cup of hot chocolate, every hole dug, every wire, board, the Art team, the production crew who smiled and put up with me, getting in the way; ) and didn't yell, people doing whatever it was you did... "I noticed" My heart is full and I am surely a better person for working on this project.
In gratitude, Lynn Nielsen
