Testimonials

quote

The texts are so helpful. I have learned a lot about how poorly I communicated with my son and how he just needs companionship and someone to listen. If I replied to a text, I got a response back right away, I never felt alone. When I felt helpless and worthless, those texts brightened my day and gave me hope.
