Last year one of our girls did well within our program and we were thrilled when she was reunited with her family. Unhappily, she was returned to us not long afterwards due to the severe decline in her grades and her lack of effort. We did what we do best with this sort of situation, rejoiced for another opportunity to make a positive difference in her life. We realize life’s not perfect and setbacks are avenues to refine rough patches.
It was meaningful to learn she recently had a GREAT report card. It was even more exciting when I was told she immediately called home with the news of her good grades. Her mom and dad prayed with her and encouraged her to keep up the good work she’d done.
