Billie came to our family as a foster child at 2 months and we adopted her at 3 years old. She was born premature and affected by drugs and alcohol.  Also, her birth parents both have some mental health challenges. Billie has had behavioral issues for quite some time and now at the age of 13 they have intensified.  Despite all of our efforts and many different types of therapy, nothing helped.
After several different therapists and therapy we were at a loss of what to do. There was extreme strain on the family and were not sure what to do. Then I heard about a residential treatment center in Idaho that specializes in treating teens with these issues.  They spend a year there gaining skills necessary to understand themselves and building tools to building healthier and stronger relationships.  We feel this is the place she needs to be and are faithful it will help all of us.
Healing a child from the effects of trauma can be very challenging and very expensive. The program will cost around $20,000. Adoptive Families Coalition is assisting us in raising funds for treatment. 100% of your tax deductible donation will go directly to the therapeutic treatment center and they will match the first $2000 in donations. THANK YOU with all our hearts.
