The Nikolic family has overcome more adversity in the past two decades than the average family would face in a lifetime. They’re met with new challenges every single day.“We’re always kind of in a crisis mode,” says Mark, patriarch of the Nikolic family. “We’re not really stopping to smell the roses. We don’t have that time.”Mark and his wife, Hilary, struggle to ensure their twin sons with autism receive the care they need, and that has come at a price. They’ve mortgaged their home three times, and it has been in disrepair for years.“I was staying awake at night, thinking, ‘what are we going to do to move forward?’ We can’t live in the house the way it is, but we also can’t afford to do anything about it,” says Mark.The Nikolics have three sons in their 20s. Alex, 25, lives at home and helps care for the twins, Eric and James, 23.The twins are also non-verbal and developmentally delayed, and they suffer from seizures. The severity of their symptoms has resulted in many damages to the Nikolics’ home.WATCH: Behind the scenes for Design for Hope Making a Difference: A dramatic home redesign for a deserving family
