The school you helped me find has been a Godsend my entire family! We thought that we had lost our son a year and 1/2 ago. Not physically lost him, but spiritually, morally and mentally lost him. We knew that it was only going to be a matter of time before we would have physically lost him if he would have stayed on the same destructive path.
We found this site through extensive research and prayed that the school you recommended was the right decision…to send our son away from home for the first time for his own good. In the first 6 months, we could see the changes in our son through phone calls, letters and emails from him and the counselors (and trust me, he had a couple of hiccups). Always a leader, our son became one that led others in the right direction versus the wrong direction. He had expectations and goals to meet. He learned to become humble in his experiences of being helped and helping others.
The biggest test of what he’s learned has been since he’s come home. When he saw his old friends at the gym, the first thing that he told them was his legal name…he told them that he no longer will answer to his old street name. He shocked them into silence…but there was a newfound respect for him in their eyes! They were curious to learn more about their ‘new’ friend.
When he came home, we had a celebration of his return with his family and he was overwhelmed by the love that was shown him. Before he left, he was too angry to see the love that surrounded him..to see his smile again was “Priceless”!! There is so much that I can say about the turnaround that my son has made…I’d never stop writing. I thank the Lord and the school for bringing my son back.
