The family and friends of Hailey Dugas are uniting to raise money to help her battle Reactive Attachment Disorder. Help Hailey Heal!

In 2006, we adopted our daughter Hailey from Ukraine. She was 4 years old when we adopted her. She sufferes from FAS, Reactive Attachment Disorder - RAD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder - ODD, Sensory Processing Disorder in all areas of functioning, and learning disabilities.

We have done years of therapy and therapeutic parenting. We have learned and used every technique/therapy that is known for RAD and FAS. Although she has made some progress, she still struggles in our family. She continues to suffer from the pain and trauma that she experienced as an infant. Her days are bleak. The pain that she inflicts on herself daily leaves our family in despair.

Today we have hope. God lead us to Changing Hearts Boarding School and Ministries - CHBSM, in North Carolina. This program is designed specifically for RAD girls. The facility houses 8 girls only. The facility is in a rural area. Farm chores, quilting, school work, worship, Bible study, Equine therapy, and therapy will be part of her daily schedule.

We hope to have Hailey enrolled by December 1st, 2011. The program cost $1500/month, with an additional $500/month for therapy. We don’t know the future, but we hope that we could bring Hailey back home in 15 to 24 months.

Would you join us in helping our Hailey heal?

Romans 8:24-26

For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
