Letter From a Graduate to a New Family Entering the Program

Dear TCP Family,

WELCOME HOME!

Please settle in.  This is the beginning of new beginnings for your family.  I know the first few nights will be tough.  You may experience grief defeat, anger… but please be kind to yourself as a human, man-woman, parent, etc.  All the decisions you have made brought you here to The Carying Place on purpose.  If you are committed to making lifestyle changes, your time here will exceed your expectations.  It takes time, patience, acceptance of “the here & now,” and most importantly a GROWTH MINDSET.  I was in your shoes with my family, and I am here to tell you, your new beginning possible.

Let me introduce myself.  My little family of 3, soon to be 4, was blessed by The Carying Place.  We became family #459 on October 27th, 2020. 

REWIND

Prior to our placement, we faced eviction, job loss, 2 car repossessions, a possible divorce after 8 months of separation, depression, anxiety… We were unsure of housing, meals, next paychecks, you name it, it was an area of concern.

FAST FORWARD

We have learned lifetime skills to budget, plan our finances, coping skills, and have been introduced to resources to help our family succeed in different areas.  We went through the motions of others having full access to our finances, past mistakes, and it has truly helped us build better habits that will not allow us to fall back into the same rabbit hole.  Please utilize your support team.  They are your #1 resource.  The experience, wisdom, and resources they have are like no other.  Be open to their input and perspective. It will be hard at first, but worth it in the end. 

We may not know each other, but I am proud of you, simply for being here.  You have reached a new level of awareness and acknowledgment.  I am praying and rooting for you to succeed.

Wishing love, light & blessings,

Your TCP Sis.
