Timothy's story

"Supporting family success in every community" is our mission. But just how do you describe a family's "success?" This recent letter provides at least one family's answer to the question.

To the Staff of Family Continuity, Therapeutic Home Care: A letter of THANKS!

From: Timothy's Mom and Dad

Our son Timothy is 14, in the eighth grade, and has struggled most of his life with ADHD and mood disorder. Tim is a teenager, and like most teens, balks at the idea of "counseling," but the improvement that we have seen here at home is remarkable. With the help of Tim's advocate and our family counselor, we work at all being on the same page as far as what we want to accomplish, and how are we going to do it. Their advice has been invaluable. We have seen such growth and maturity, in all of us really. Our overall communication has improved, as well as our ability to set expectations and work as a team to accomplish them. Tim is more cooperative with household activities (including chores) and has been able to set goals for himself: he is learning that he has to earn privileges by accepting more responsibilities. Thanks to the support of Family Continuity, this last year has been so much more successful!

Our progress is shown in one small story. When we first began with Family Continuity, we were asked as parents, what would one thing be that you would like to see happen or change? It seems like such a superficial thing, but we both replied that it would be wonderful to take a family vacation - a successful family vacation. We felt trapped at home and missed being able to share one of our passions, travel, with the family.

Well, this past week we took a family vacation for the first time in years and it was WONDERFUL. We laid a lot of groundwork, preparing Tim for new experiences. We were able to set expectations for appropriate behavior and Timothy was, for lack of a better word, awesome. He handled himself beautifully during "boring" times and "anxious" times. He was polite and respectful to people. I firmly believe that all the preparations we made, with the help of Family Continuity, made all the difference.

We have learned to accept input from "the experts" to help us in difficult times, and we appreciate any advice and guidance they can offer. They have been there through it all and Tim knows there is a whole team of people looking out for him. That is important, even if at 14 he doesn't fully appreciate it, and I know that when things get hard, Family Continuity is only a phone call away.

So thank you everyone at Family Continuity! Thank you for being kind and professional. Thanks for advising when necessary and listening when we just needed to vent. Thanks for making Tim feel special. It's great to have you on our team.
