BLOG AND TESTIMONIALS
By Jennifer Martin, Mother of Becky Martin
I am so grateful for Restoring Hope and the difference they are making in my daughter's life. My daughter, Becky, has always been a handful and has had plenty of ups and downs with her staff. After much searching for a new agency to serve my daughter (and many prayers), my service coordinator learned about Restoring Hope and shared with me the concept of a "host home". I was a little uneasy of the concept of a "host home" at first and thought I might have my "mommy feelings" hurt with her bonding with another family, but it has been a wonderful experience. Since Becky moved in with Jaimee and Atlee and their family I have seen a great improvement in her attitude and behavior and she is so happy! I attribute much of this to having a stable environment, consistent staff, and good role models. It makes my heart feel good knowing she lives with a good Christian family that she truly likes, and she does not dread going back to the host home after a home visit with me. I believe Jaimee and Atlee are doing a wonderful job teaching her life skills, responsibility, and appropriate communication skills. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with everyone I have met and dealt with at Restoring Hope. You all are such a blessing! Thank you for ALL YOU DO!
