"I just want to thank you for everything you do for us kids. There's not many people in my life who have done things for me. You have made this place a safe and comfortable place to live and get help. I admire you for all the work you've done for us.
When I was little, I never really had a place to call home or someone to love and care for me and tell me everything's gonna be alright. You and your staff have given me that and the chance to get better, a hope for a brighter future and a temporary place to call home.
I've been in foster homes since I was four, and always dreaded coming home because I didn't know what to expect when I got home. Now I am greeted with side-hugs and the words, how was your day. So, thank you for doing that for me. I'm sure all the other kids who did well in your program would say the same things. Again, thank you for all you've done, you stepped into my life when everyone else walked out.
Love, Lizzie L.
