"Through my stay here at Homewood I have made incredible progress. I am astonished by the transformation I have seen in myself. It is hard to believe that just months ago I was deep in the throes of an eating disorder, and now I feel absolutely amazing. I feel like a whole new person. I have hope for the future and confidence that I can achieve my dreams of going to school, becoming a nurse, getting married and eventually having children."
