Attachment-driven classroom strategies helping rescued children heal.


Thank you for walking alongside adoptive families as they cultivate the soil of their rescued children's hearts.

We are honored to serve alongside you!


Developed from over fifteen years of living with children with attachment disorder, Unplowed Ground is a compilation of what I personally experienced to be the very best parenting strategies from the top experts in the field, combined with my own firsthand experience in the intensive care unit, in the classroom, and in the home, all wrapped in a biblically-based, Christ-centered approach."

author of Unplowed Ground, co-founder and executive director of King’s Ranch, mom of six, and therapeutic parenting specialist

When we felt helpless, worn down, stressed to the max, fearful for the future of our child, the Lord led us to Lee Anne Cooper. She was the best resource and teacher that we could have ever found in regards to parenting a child with compromised attachment. She trained us using Unplowed Ground, provided us with support and guidance throughout the process of learning how to parent therapeutically as well as the right type of therapy/therapist needed for our child and for our family to begin to heal. After Unplowed Ground, our daughter became more helpful, began doing well in school, and progressed well on her road to healing from her complex trauma that occurred early in her childhood.
