A Home for Holidays and Beyond

Merry Christmas to all

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- F  or the first time in her life, Stacey Baldwin will not spend Christmas with her grandmother. 
After raising Stacey and Stacey’s three sisters, Granny learned in the spring that she had cancer. She died in August. 
The death of someone who was virtually a parent would be traumatic for anyone but doubly so for Stacey Baldwin, who is developmentally disabled and unable to live on her own. For her and others like her, a change of address can be a monumental proposition.
Despite her grandmother’s death, the 21-year-old isn’t spending the holidays alone or in an institution.
