WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Welcome Home Angel organization and Circle of Hope transformed three bedrooms for the Bowman family home on Queen Street.

Sharill Bowman's six-year-old son Michael has cerebral palsy. The organizations transformed his room to create space for his wheelchair. They also took elements from his favorite movie Cars.

"I feel like he can go to a place he can call his, even with his disability," said Bowman. "He has a room he can call his own and it fits him very well with the décor and the theme. Everything is wonderful. I love it."

Welcome Home Angel also transformed Michael's two-year-old sister's room into a princess palace and the Bowman's room into a peaceful sanctuary.

"She works full time, goes to school, is a mother with a special needs child and a two-year-old," said volunteer Marsha Ratliff. "Just a hardworking mom."
