Family at Wall RaisingOver the course of the last few months of 2015 and early 2016, as Taylor’s Austin Habitat for Humanity home came to life, there were many stories told about his dream. From the first story by Erin Cargile of KXAN as Taylor started his fundraising to many others along the way, Taylor, along with his family, have been privileged to talk not just about a house but about love, our love for Maureen and the power of love to change lives.

We have collected these stories in as close to chronological order as possible here:
