Father of Special Needs Children Builds Handicap-Accessible Snow Fort
Gregg Eichhorn could be considered a great father for many reasons and his newest act of kindness is helping get his story out there.
The Cincinnati man and his wife have nine children, each one of them are adopted and have special needs. Recently Gregg built a snow fort for his kids that is wheelchair-accessible.
“We built a bigger igloo," he said to WXIX. "One that had a handicap-accessible hole so Elijah and Zahara could experience it, because I did when I was a kid.”
One of his neighbors posted a couple photos on Reddit and the story took off from there. The father of nine hopes his story will help others open their hearts and consider adoption.
"Our family is getting kind of full and it would be great if people stepped up, took on the same roles and enjoyed the kind of joy that we do," he said. "Because yeah, we get a lot of joy out of life."
