Why Four Birds?
Short answer? Our last name, Vogelzang, means “Bird Song” in Dutch. Our little family is comprised of 4 quirky humans. As our son would say, “Boom, Four Birds.” Family is the origin of this business. I was searching for a space where we could bring special needs & adoptive parents together in Denver and divine intervention alone lead us from Denver to Grand Rapids and from my brick and mortar vision to a shiny vintage Airstream. Through this process Four Birds Airstream Gathering Spaces was born.
My original vision of bringing parents together who share in our journey is just a fraction of the goodness in store. We will Gather Give and Grow until we’re blue in the face. And through it all, we’ll remain rooted in family and our gift of giving back. That’s the good stuff after all.
Side note worth mentioning…our son and I are publishing a picture book about what it feels like to live in his brain (he thrives with Autism and Tourette Syndrome). It hits shelves in September, 2019 and is epic on levels I can’t quite explain. “If I Squeeze Your Head I’m Sorry” will charm the pants right off its readers.
