Colleen recently received this heartwarming note from a loving mother:
My daughter Ava and I just wanted to reach out and thank you for your Resources and Useful Links page.
Ava did her 6th grade final project for health class on Eating Disorders. In her online research she found your page – it was so helpful to her I wanted to reach out and thank you. I hadn’t seen her that invested in her school work in a long time. I’m grateful she’s committed to such an important topic, especially with her teen years right around the corner. I think the pressures put on kids today are 10x worse than when I was in school, and it was difficult back then.
I meant to email earlier, but we went on vacation and the time got away from me. Ava graduated 6th grade June 21st and her teacher specifically came up to me to tell me what a great job she did on that project. I have been meaning to email you ever since to thank you for your part in her success. When I told Ava I was going to email you to thank you for your page, she suggested(insisted) I let you know about another guide she found online on Eating Disorders at http://dentalassociatesnova.com/staying-healthy-all-about-eating-disorders/ . She thought it might be a good addition to your page. I know it was helpful to Ava in her research, so hopefully you find some use for it too.
Thank you again and have a wonderful summer!
Linda & Ava W.
