I am Cheryl Thompson, born in Birmingham, England. I emigrated to Canada in 1988 after living a year in Edinburgh, Scotland. Becky is my daughter, born in Etobicoke, Canada. She was permanently disabled in a car accident in 1992. We now live with our cat,
hamster, and mouse, in Mississauga, Ontario.
Becky is now working towards independent living. She was awarded funding in November 2011 to move ahead with her goal. Becky moved to a condo in May 2012 where she could be more independent, and safer, than in a house. Unfortunately, it did not go well. There were problems with staff, the condo, and Becky herself. We retreated back to the house in September. Thank goodness we didn’t sell it!
