Meet Sony & Julian
My husband and I have been together for over 30 years. One day my middle brother brought Jay home after school. Our eyes locked and that was it! I knew he was one and only. My husband is Julian, who likes to be called “Jay.” Our children and I call him, “Dad.” Jay is the last of his kind. Jay works hard and puts in 110% into anything he does. In his free time, he wakes up the children and sometimes me early in the morning to take us out for a walk, run or bike. Jay puts in up to seven hours at home before he shows up for his regular place of employment and puts in overtime, if needed. Jay also he loves spending time with his family going camping, fishing, hunting, canoeing, ect.
My name is Sony, Jay's wife. I’ve worked as a Phlebotomist at UW Hospital for the last 10 years. I love spending time with my family. Once in a while, I'll take myself away in a historical romance novel. Our oldest daughter Samantha likes to be called, “Samy.” She's 14 years old. Samy is into reading historical fiction. The latest book she's reading is, “Salt to the Sea.” She also reads D/C comics, likes drawing and watching or going to hockey games.
Devilen is our middle son. He's 12 years old. Devilen likes hanging out with his friends, going to the movies and riding his bike. He enjoys making food. Devilen loves spending time with his family, especially with his Dad, because Dad takes him deer hunting.
Our last but not least youngest daughter is Jaynessa. She's 9 years old. Jaynessa loves doing gymnastics on her own. She reads lots of chapter books and the mail (ha-ha). Jaynessa make lots of arts and crafts and hangs them up all over the place for decoration. She also plays outside with friends, and loves telling her own original made up jokes.
My husband and I never really thought we could purchase a house. The plan was to guide our children to grow up with a good head on their shoulders and make smart, wise decisions, graduate high school, and go off to college. We hope they will be happy and become successful in life.
In September of 2016, my family lives turned upside down. First responders say Jay avoided something on the road and crashed into a metal guard rail while on his motorcycle. A truck driver found him unconscious, then immediately dialed “911.” My husband was airlifted by Medflight helicopter to UW Hospital. My husband sustained life threatening injuries.
Now all of a sudden, our future responsibilities have changed. Looking for a handicap accessibility home is difficult. During my appointment with the Middleton Outreach Program, I was introduced to the Habitat for Humanity program. The children and I were visiting their Dad at Clearview Rehabilitation when we received the most amazing news that we were qualified for the program! We are so excited with the news, we screamed and jumped up and down with joy. The children got Dad to laugh and smile from cheek to cheek for the first time since the accident.
