One of the anecdotes from The Evans Terrace Girls shows how God remains with us and sends out HIS angels to lead us out of despair. May he do the same for you; we hope you recognize HIS signs because they can lead you out of your mourning. We have donated a part of our story to the anthology entitled April Rains and hope it helps.
Jenny and Julie Hanson are sisters and the daughter of Cynthia Meyers-Hanson. When the girls were in elementary school, after hearing a neighbor lost their dad to a blood clot and the family needed a gallon of milk, after seven or more parents died within 2 years in our 100 home subdivision, the children haunted by the rumor that their neighborhood was cursed did what it takes to feel empowered and back in control. They set up the proverbial lemonade stand. That action helped start the journey from grief to miracles and life sustaining hope as an informal club emerged with Jenny as the founder and leader and Julie as the treasurer. The resulting book is The Evans Terrace Girls. After Newton’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, the club’s full story as a full book excerpt was donated to the S.H.E Anthology to help mental health agencies specializing in children’s issues help move that town back to hope.
