Posts Tagged ‘Loss of Son’

It is very painful to lose a child and unfortunately many parents know of this grief. Patti and Kyle Petty took their grief from loosing their son Adam and directed it towards building Adam’s dream, Victory Junction. This energy was the passion and focus of erecting a facility for children with chronic medical or serious illnesses. After participating in a charity motorcycle ride benefitting Camp Boggy Creek for seriously ill children, Adam was inspired to build a similar facility in North Carolina.

Not every parent who looses a child can honor a son or daughter as the Petty family did, but every parent has the ability to create a unique tribute honoring a life cut short.

Victory Junction not only honors Adam, but other children like Jesse. A good friend of Adam’s sister passed and another facility was erected in her memory, Jesse’s Horsepower Garage.

Victory Junction is a beautiful camp with many amenities for the children and the volunteers.

One would never know the camp caters to chronic and terminally ill children because of the diverse amenities.

The treehouse is like no other.

The children can fish off of the pier with the motto, “Catch, Kiss and Release.”

There are numerous buildings, all containing a different activity for the children to enjoy.

When you see a weeping cherry tree (above), Adam has met another child who was able to experience Victory Junction before passing. Since 2004, 12,000 children played in the park and 12 campers are now playing with Adam.

The spiritual center is serene, peaceful and non-denominational.

Many parents will return as volunteers and visit the center to reflect upon the memories of their children.

This is a wonderful tribute for a son so loved.
