Rose Morris, 38 (President, Abram’s Bed)

Rose Morris’ autistic son, Abram, was prone to wandering at night. He could easily escape his room, and the likelihood that he’d hurt himself was a constant worry. For Abram’s bed, Morris helped design a strong, tent-like enclosure, which zips around his mattress from the outside, keeping him safely contained at night. Realizing that many families struggle with this same issue, she now sells Abram’s Bed as the Safety Sleeper and has sold almost 40 beds in the past 18 months. “Too many families have tragic stories about their child getting out, and too often the story is not followed with a happy ending. I hope to help alleviate that issue,” she says.
