We have a dear family friend who was removed from her family by the state a few years ago. She has special needs and the family was abusing her. It broke our hearts to see the physical abuse she endured and while we were saddened when she was put into a group home, we know it was a far better place for her to live. Rachelle is capable of taking care of herself and actually helps take care of some of the other residents in the group home. She has a big heart and loves to help others. When she was removed from her family, Rocky became her court appointed advocate so we've been continually involved in her life. Rocky works hand in hand with her DHS case worker as well as her case worker at the group home. Since Rachelle's capable of taking care of herself and she's so highly functioning, Rocky worked together with her case workers to get her moved into her very own home. She still lives in the care community but lives in her OWN home instead of the group home. We went to visit her just after she moved in and I thought it'd be nice to give her a handmade card.
