“Thank you so much for advocating for my dad. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to care for him. My family and I were able to surround him with the love and support he deserved. He lived such a full life and has left me with beautiful memories, words of wisdom, and a model of Christian living to continue and grow by. I miss him immensely, but I know he was tired and had fought a good fight. Again, I thank you for protecting my dad's rights to have his family in his life. You all became his angels on earth.”

"Thank you for everything that has been done for my brother. We have seen such wonderful improvements with him since you were appointed as his guardian."

"The process of guardianship was unfamiliar and scary to me. However, having you as my guardian made the road a little easier. You believed in me and my ability to get back on my feet. It gave me an opportunity to restructure my relationships and get physically and mentally healthy again. I want others to know that a guardianship doesn't have to mean your life is over. It means you need help. Help can come in different forms. I am glad you were able to advocate for me during a difficult time in my life. Now I can advocate again for myself and keep moving towards my dreams."
“I would like to say thank you very much for all your support and guidance. It’s wonderful to have an amazing team who cares for our disabled family members. I’m definitely grateful for you and your team for helping my sister find a safe, clean and caring home. My sister is thriving in her new home and learning life skills”.
