I never thought this would happen to me. In order to see my son they were making me go thru this agency. I was embarrassed and angry at the same time. But I was willing to do anything in order to see my 8 year old. I truly thought it would be harder on him to see me briefly and be taken away. WOW was I wrong! We had a wonderful time and it felt like home. The staff were friendly, caring and did not make you feel like a failure. They did not look over your shoulder; everyone allowed you to spend uninterrupted time with your child. One occasion we were not speaking loud enough and a lady kindly and discreetly asked if we would speak a little louder. I would just like to say THANK YOU! Because of MR. Ray and EVERYONE else at the Whistle Stop Me and my son get to spend quality time together until things change. GOD BLESS THIS CENTER AND THE PEOPLE THAT TAKE THEIR OWN TIME TO HELP OTHERS!
I got information through my son's attorney and what I read it is most beneficial to both parents. Both parents are monitored and they don't have to interact with each other while the other parent is visiting with child.
