He's Growing Up

  • Yay! He's got this! I bet it was mixed emotions to hear him say that, but what a moment! He's taking ownership and was confident that he'd make his way to that first hour classroom:) I'm sure that last week was hard running around getting him settled and this huge decision that you've been contemplating for quite some time. It could take some getting used to and hoping that he's found a buddy to chat with on the bus ride to and fro. And exhale . . . a little.

    Wishing you all a good first week and beyond,


  • That is so awesome!! So amazing that he is so confident.  I hope he has an amazing school year. What a sigh of relief that he was ok with so much change so quickly.



  • Oh Sam...this is so bittersweet, isn't it?  Yes, he's got this.  But it's so hard to let go, when you've fought so hard for so long for every single little step forward.  But you've prepared him for this, every single day of loving him his entire life has prepared him to stand up, to take control and to own this new school.

    I'm so proud of him and of you for this moment, when he KNEW he had it and when you saw it too and let him go, even if only for a day, to figure it all out on his own.

    He's totally got this.

    So much love to you and Jadon (and Jaxson and Trinity, of course.  :-) )


  • Such an amazing boy you raised!! I'm not there yet but everyday I marvel at how little by little Abbey doesn't need me as much anymore! I hope everything is going well this week, for both of you.

    Love and Hugs
