Review for Star of Hope International America Inc, Ellinwood, KS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I thank God for this wonderful child that He sent to our family. He changed radically our life and made us see things and the whole world from his point of view. His world is much better and much cleaner than the one in which we lived until now.
Cristian is a little boy which now has been 10 years since he has been diagnosed with autism at age of 7 years old. Until that age we kept going to different doctors that underlined some “alleged problems”. The child start talking at age of 4 years and a half and at about 3 years we went to a doctor which said: “Don’t worry, Blaga spoke for the first time at 5 at the first word was silly”. I left with a bitter taste because I had other expectations from him.
Two years ago I found out about Star of Hope, where I found a big, strong and very united family with human beings eager to offer us help and unconditionally support. Here I have found the serenity and comfort I needed. Cristi comes here for speech therapy and psychotherapy surrounded by very agreeable people for him (autistic children don’t empathize with everyone).
Thanks to all of staff members because they are doing a great job informing the parents from all points of view, helping us in impasse and keeping us together by organizing all kinds of meetings (with moms, with dads, and children). This matter a lot for us as a family with a child with special needs, we feel understood and safe.
It would be a lot more to say about the Star of Hope foundation, about our family experience but I pray for everyone’s health so we could keep collaborating because we need you so much.
Thank you Star of Hope for being there for us!
