"I'm so grateful!"
When Jodi was in crisis, she reached out for help. Thanks to you, Highfields was able to step in and stabilize her family.
A local church group fixed the wheelchair ramp for Jodi's daughter.
   Jodi has four amazing children under the age of 15 and all have special needs.    
   "Before we started working with Highfields, we were unable to go to the store, go on family outings, or eat meals together as a family because of my children's behavioral issues," said Jodi.
   Her youngest son is 11-years old and has a variety of challenges. He has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autism, Mood Dysregulation Disorder, an overactive bladder, and suffers from depression.
   He started having problems at school and would run away from the building because he didn't want to leave Jodi.
Mini Milestones  
Thanks to your support, 10-year-old Samuel* has opportunities to be successful.
   Katherine* embraces the joys and challenges of being a mother. She and her husband raised five biological children who are now adults living on their own. They now have seven adopted children ages 6-17 at home. All seven children have been through the foster care system and have special needs.
   Their adopted son, Samuel, experienced significant trauma in his past. He has severe behavioral and mental health challenges and needs full time attention.
    "Samuel's needs are greater than all of my other children combined," said Katherine.
