|We are a small family-owned and operated business made up of two families that have put to work the whole family including our very special kids. [Doing small fun jobs to build confidence, improve life skills, and inclusion] Our combined families have five beautiful children, four of whom were adopted.
Our children have several special needs including a condition called RAD [Reactive Attachment Disorder]. Though rarely diagnosed, this condition is more common than mainstream awareness, and we want to educate more people. As advocates for children of trauma, enhancement for families living with trauma, and independent living for RAD survivors, it is our passion to educate, support, and nurture the process of a better lifestyle and safe haven for the youth through their adulthood. We support the non-profit, C.H.I.L.D. [Children’s Help Institute for Lifetime Development] supports families and programs going through the difficult challenges associated with raising children who have RAD and/or other special needs. If you or someone you know is challenged with raising a child with RAD or other special needs, please contact us for more information.
|One of our other “kids” is Billy. Billy is also our company “spokesgoat” for PureSoapsAndCandles. Billy is one of our special milk-producing goats. She’s a special kid that likes a lot of attention. She responds especially well with praise. Plus she gets along well with the pigs on the farm since she’s such a ham.|
