“Donations are crucial to this ministry. Without the scholarships we received, there is no possible way we could have afforded to send our son there. We are a family of nine living off one salary, and that salary doesn’t pay the bills. Families like ours suffer tremendously when we can’t afford the level of care our children need. And we did for a year. Families like ours need breaks to rest, relax, and renew, to not live hyper-vigilantly. And so many families can’t afford this type of care without the financial help of scholarships.
Without King’s Ranch, my family would be drowning. My biological kids would be hurt, scared, depressed, and continuing to be neglected because of the amount of intensive care required for our hurting kids. I would be angry and exhausted. My children with reactive attachment disorder would be stuck in a vicious cycle of rage and hate and hurting others. And ultimately, we probably would end up dissolving our adoption (even though we knew that’s what God called us to). There is a level of pain that just becomes unbearable, and the will to go on is gone. So without King’s Ranch, our family would be broken.”
