Hi, my name is Ariana and I’m 12 years old. Before my Mom went to Rosewood, she was sick and too thin. I didn’t think she was ever coming back because ED was taking her away from me. She was gone for months and all I could feel was alone, sad, and tired. I missed my Mom. I needed her to get better. Once my mom returned home I was so happy. She was this baby bird that had grew her wings got bigger and became a hen. She has come a long way since being home. She is now the Mom I’ve always had, but never saw because ED consumed her. It was like a natural disaster that hit our family. Like a tornado. Rosewood has made a huge impact on not only my Mom’s life but mine as well. If it wasn’t for Rosewood and Shannon, I’m not sure if my mom would be here. No one should be ashamed of who they are and should see the beauty within. Everyone is perfect just the way they are. Thank you Rosewood for allowing my mom to see herself through God’s eyes.
