I valued knowing that my son was safe and in confident trustworthy, well-trained hands (field guides and therapist); regular check-ins (via letter writing, and therapist weekly calls); parent support (wellness weekend and Monday night calls); the space and time for parents to recover from the trauma; and for the kids to go “tech free” – a rare gift these days.
I’d like to thank Open Sky for this incredible, life-changing experience for my son and our entire family. Special thanks to Morgan and all the team Gaia field guides for the exceptional dedication to the well-being of our kids. Much thanks to Amy Hartline and Norman E. for their patient, comforting parent support. We are sad to depart from Open Sky…all the security and support…but we leave in hope and with the faith that our child can hold all that he gained.
