“I’m so grateful for the opportunities I have been given. As a donor, you may not get to see how you change our lives, but trust me, my life has changed since coming to Cookson. When I arrived, I had no idea who I was; I struggled with my identity and my worth. Cookson has changed that for me; I have been able to spread my wings and figure out my identity and worth through Christ and the loving community around me. Being at Cookson, I don’t have to question if I’m loved and if I’m worth it. I know that I am loved, and I am safe. Thank you so much for making a change in me and all the other kids at Cookson. We love you!”
