Hope for every child, every family.™

Garrett

I can’t say enough positive things about the work that has been done with Garrett. He is a totally different kid now than when he started with Lighthouse in July. I was reluctant in the beginning because 8 hours a day, 5 days a week seemed like so much but it turns out that it was exactly what he needed. When we go to restaurants he orders his own food. At Ty’s wedding recently he was the center of attention. Not only did he do a fantastic job, he was spoken to by several people he had never met before and he responded appropriately to each person and was able to carry on a conversation. I have never been so proud. He knows things that I don’t even know he knows and he surprises me on a regular basis with his knowledge and newfound talkativeness and self expression. He’s a terrific kid and so smart. I am so thankful we have people like you who work with him daily and treat him like he is your own. He loves going to “school” and we frequently have “school” at home where he teaches his brother and I and makes us “work for” things.  He tells me all the time he wants to be a teacher when he grows up and there is no doubt in my mind that this passion for teaching others is fueled by the terrific work you all are doing daily with him. Thank you so much for your time, patience, love and support.
