Addiction destroys families, relationships, and lives everyday in this country and around the world. Many of you reading this may already know the pain and anguish of watching someone you love slip into the darkness of addiction. This has been our life for the last few years as we have struggled to save Tim, Kristen's brother.
During this time, we have experienced small moments of progress but also many disheartening defeats. Yet we have continued to believe and pray that God would find Tim in the darkness and bring him into the light. Last week that prayer was answered as Tim sought detox treatment on his own. We are so grateful that God heard our cries for help, and that Tim realized that his life matters and is worth saving.
We are trying to support Tim's recovery, but opiate rehabilitation is very expensive. So, we are turning to our friends, family, acquaintances, and strangers for help in our time of need. We appreciate anything and everything you give so that we can plan Tim's treatment and future with him.
Thank you for your time and generosity.
Matt, Kristen, and Kathy
