There is no greater feeling than helping someone who is in a desperate situation, especially a stranger. It happened to Cille quite unexpectedly after she spoke at a women’s gathering about our experience with the Wellbeing Group. A young woman came up to Cille afterwards, with tears in her eyes, “Please call my Mom tomorrow. My brother is in a situation”. Cille did call and this is what she discovered.
The young man had been diagnosed with ADD in grade school and had difficulty focusing, throughout his 22 years of life. Cille suggested that they consider a Brain Optimization assessment, which is the methodology used by the Wellbeing Group, to see if it might help him.
This would prove to be challenging. The family lives in New Brunswick (NB) and there is a practitioner in neighbouring Prince Edward Island (PEI). However, the young man was not allowed to leave the province while awaiting a court appearance, charged with being an accessory to a car theft, which he claims he did not commit.
Cille connected the family with the practitioner, who offered to travel to NB to do the assessment. He also shared that there is precedence in court that could benefit the young man. Brain Optimization assessments have been presented by the defense and some judges have shown leniency. There is hope. There is always hope.
Do you have a story that inspires HOPE! We would love to read about it in the comments below.
