Beth & Trace Embry,
Our son mentioned in the last letter how you both seemed to him so genuinely concerned for him and how you had revealed some of your own emotional weakness. You have been able to communicate to him through your words and deeds and understanding that you will be there for him, show him the truth and point him in the right direction.
It goes without saying how much we appreciate you, the staff and ministry of Shepherd Hill Academy for loving our son through his deep hurts and confusion. The day we brought him to you was the most difficult day of our lives, and I can say with a clear conscience that I have had not one moment of regret. I know he is safe, he is loved, he is learning honesty and respect and most of all he is beginning to learn the depth, breath and scope of God’s love for him. You have effectively communicated to him that he can trust his heart, his past, and future to his Heavenly Father, and for that we are forever indebted to you. Praying that God brings you many blessings for your kindness.
