Life changing. My daughter attended as a girl (actually lived there until 18). I believe that her stay there saved her life.
Her workers and I waited an agonizing two years before she was old enough to be accepted. I would use my name but I won't talk about my daughter without her permission. Now, my family needs
Maryhurst again. A young girl, my granddaughter, has
been failed by the mainstream educational processes.
At age 111/2 she can not read, write and is delayed in many ways. There is a beautiful young woman waiting
to blossom underneath the mask of indifference
she is starting to wear. I know Maryhurst can work miracles because I have seen you already work them.
