It took almost a year and a half to raise $13,000 to come to the intensive program at Sonrise and the sense of accomplishment hit me when we got in the car in Québec to drive to Sheffield (outside NY): We made it.
Thank you to all who have helped to make this dream come true for us. Mika’s supporters were generous and instrumental at getting us this absolutely amazing training. Thank you.
The setting for our program was ideal. We were allocated a cozy house where trainers came to us: Mika received 10 hours of one-on-one per day in her playroom while we learned new strategies, unfolded negative beliefs about ourselves and observed Mika with a different set of eyes.
We came home with hundreds of new ideas for play, new strategies and a renewed sense of purpose in our program.
