Testimonials from Volunteers and Parents

Hi Eileen,

I want to tell you, how much I admire you and all that you do for the kids, as well as the parents.  It takes a special person, to stand up and put something like this in place, to support those in need with communication, patience and love for others.  I have enjoyed this experience as a volunteer.  At first, I wasn't sure I could keep up with the kids and understand their needs, but the kids led the way and I realized the interaction was special.  I would like to participate in your future endeavors and volunteer my time again.   The sessions spent with them went by too quickly, and we just started to bond.  I hope, maybe you could put together a short seminar for volunteers like myself, an informational training session.  I came into this blind, not sure how to handle such a task.  I thought to myself, "Well!  I am a mother and raised a son myself.  I have the patience, love and willingness to continue, but I need more confidence and assurance that I'm doing the right thing.  Thanks for sharing the pictures of the kids, I downloaded all of them and will look at them, and share them with my friends and family.  I'll love the memories.


Thanks, Eileen.  It's really been working out great for our son.  Often we try activities for special needs kids that are too structured and don't give him choices and the ability to move around.  So your program is just his style!  Yay!


Dear Eileen and Megan,

The words Thank you will never come close to sharing our appreciation to you both for the amazing kindness and generosity that you so beautifully gave to our family and our son on his birthday.

I told Megan on Saturday, each year on his birthday I always shed a few tears of sadness for the loss of what I had hoped for him.

Never In my wildest dreams had I ever thought, that on his 15th birthday I would be filled with so much joy and peace. All my eyes saw and felt at the Farm was LOVE, and BEAUTY… everywhere!

The horses, the trees, and all of you-I was brought to a different kind of tears. Thank you both for giving me a memory I will never forget.  I know, in my heart we are right where we need to be.

I thank god for bringing us to you!  I hope you know how much you have already changed our lives through your work and incredible humanity.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Allison and Mike D.
