While visiting camps in the Great Lakes Region, I met 17 year old Amanda from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She was never in foster care like the rest of our campers; she was an adoptee struggling with attachment issues. Dr Keck from the Ohio Attachment and Bonding Center arranged for 6 year old Amanda to attend Royal Family KIDS Camp. It was the first of 6 years as a camper, and 2 years as teen staff. It worked. She told meat camp this summer that she learned how to love from the volunteers of RFK. She is now one of those volunteers. The Royal Family is family to Amanda.
How many more Amandas are drifting through our system? With each placement their ability to attach takes a hit. Please consider making a year end gift to support our work in the Great Lakes Region by clicking on the Donate button.
