Although she wasn't disrespectful, my daughter made it clear from the beginning she did not agree that the Ranch was where she was supposed to be. Refusing to call the staff "Aunt" and "Uncle," not participating in Devotionals, clinging to being an atheist....she stood her ground. I have kept a scrap book with every letter in order that she and I have sent each other. I often go back and read them....in awe of the transformation I witnessed through our words in the 121 days she was in your care. She has told me over and over the hardest part of Edgewood has been looking at and forgiving herself. The biggest thing Edgewood did for her is give her faith in herself.
