Ironwood Maine Testimonials
Heather's Parent Testimonial
Tim and I cannot thank you enough for all you did in helping our family over the 9 month period while Mollie was at Ironwood. Sometimes, I wish the whole world around us could be as safe, warm, caring, patient, and understanding as the staff and environment was for Mollie while she was there. It is hard to leave the structure of something as comfortable and safe only to be thrown back out into the overwhelming, over stimulating, over indulging big, big world. Our true journey has only just begun and yes we know it won’t always be “smooth sailing”. It struck me as ironic that this seems like a test, one we are all willing to take and yet all three of us (Tim, Mollie, & myself) were and are terrible test takers. None of us wants to fail, yet none of us has all the answers. We have been given new tools by all of you at Ironwood and it is our responsibility to know when and how to use them. I pray each day for wisdom and strength, that Tim and I can be the parents we need (and want) to be for the daughter we love so very, very much!
God bless you and your family.
