Save the Farm

Stopping in with a post today about something near and dear to our hearts. Over the last five years of therapeutic interventions, animals have been a significant part of our journey. Most recently, we were introduced to Aimee’s Farm Sanctuary. Aimee’s compassion, grace and generosity blew us away. We were allowed two full hours of interaction with special needs animals as an individual family coping with ongoing trauma from special needs: anxiety, OCD, and sensory challenges at no cost.

Families like ours spend a significant amount of personal resources to see our kids thrive. Honestly, we’ve never received any sort of love and attention therapeutically without a price tag attached!

Will you help us save the farm?

Aimee’s Farm Sanctuary is in financial duress due to a change in their lot status. A loose rental agreement for the lot has been changed to a buyout due to developers – investors – wanting to build.

This feels like the movies we watch with our kids.

And we so deeply desire Aimee, the animals, and our community to see a happy ending!

Our visit to Aimee’s wasn’t only healing for Bliss, dear ones, it was healing for me. I walked away from that space with tangible proof that our God is a good God. Still. And there are beautiful, incredible humans that will take the time and energy to love our children where they are at. Aimee is one of those people.

Please Help Us Save the Farm.

Every little bit counts.

All creatures great and small COUNT.

P.S. As I went to write this today, I felt as though the Lord placed his hands on me to say “be still and know that I am God.” We know that we are not of this world, but every little bit we can do to bring love and light to those we walk alongside is so, so important. This life matters, dear ones. We matter.

With Love,
J. & Bliss
