DDP has been a life-saver for our family. When we first started working with a therapist, our 2 adopted daughters’ behaviour was extremely challenging and our own health was under threat. We were asking for support out of desperation and in fear of our family breaking up.
Starting with our own well-being and what we needed to be available for our daughters, the therapist we worked with expertly helped us to see understand both our girl’s behaviour and needs, and how we needed to work with them. As we slowly recovered, so the focus was on the relationship between the girls, individually and us – mainly mum.
The change in our girls’ wellbeing and behaviour, the complete transformation of our relationship with them, and how we have learned to live well as parents has taken us from desperation to a family who thrives. And in all our dealings with ACE we have found them to be understanding, supportive and positive about providing and maintaining the input we have needed. We could not be more thankful.
