Meghan DeLong is the mother of two beautiful little boys, Conner and Kaleb, whom she adopted through the Department of Children and Families in Polk County, FL. Both boys were placed in my care at infancy and were only 5 months apart in age.
On Mother’s day morning (May 14, 2017), Meghan’s 2 year old son, Conner’s, became trapped beneath his dresser when it tipped over on top of him and he died in her arms the next evening.
Since his passing, Meghan has dedicated her time, knowledge, experience, and passion to educate our community and to push for stronger standards for furniture. The mission of Conner’s Legacy Foundation is to promote education, advocacy, and resources for the awareness of furniture tip-over prevention at the community level and the national level by sharing Conner’s story, providing community outreach and education, and encouraging mandatory regulation standards for furniture.
