Testimonials

Weaver-Family-Picturewetb-225x300.jpg

 It's not difficult for us to imagine where our son might be if we hadn't learned about the developmental issues he would face early on, and begin the continual process of getting him all the treatment and support we could find to help him grow and learn. Even though he has delays and struggles to process information, his instincts are amazing and his sense of humor is witty and silly. We very much appreciate the generous support from Family Hope Foundation, for helping to ease the financial strain that comes with building our son's future. It is so comforting to know there are people who understand just how important this support is to families. Watching our son grown and learn these past years – understanding the many challenges he's faced – we can't help but be extremely thankful for all the encouragement he's received. It's a blessing to not be focused on where he might be, but inspired by how far he's come, and encouraged by what he will achieve next.
