I could write about so many different things today...but nothing would trump the phone call I got this morning.
I would say that some things are worth pushing for - and my insistence that Gavin be able to go to school with our Miss Sara was one of those things.
Today...they said YES!!
I don't have a start date for this pre-school program yet. Actually, the classroom doesn't even exist yet! It will be staffed and filled with the few kids they have lined up...Gavin being one of them. It's a dream situation - like this classroom will be tailored to fit him just right.
And knowing that Sara can accompany him as a personal aide every day? Brilliant. I think it will make Gavin's transition much easier. I think it will help the teachers and therapists get to know him faster. But, let's face it - it will spare my heart, save me on anti-anxiety medication and lower my stress level. I can't even begin to tell you how happy this makes me.
Miss Sara, too. When I got off the phone we did the happy hugging dance together. She and Gavin really have become buddies.
I'm feeling just so grateful today.
