I had to take my 2 and 3 year old with me to the meeting.
how he started 3 weeks late, quickly caught up with his peers and passed them.
After Christmas break, they gave him 7th grade coursework.
We were impressed and very happy for Adam.
He told me he was amazed with Adam, what a sweet kid he is,
how the teachers love him.
He said they want to start Adam in the 8th grade next fall!
I had a good idea that was coming.
But to hear it from the person guiding his education, WOW!
I asked about emotional development. He said he felt Adam would be fine. That he is so different from a lot of the other children.
He said as his parents, we need to embrace that.
Because, as he went on, "there's just something about Adam!"
If you have followed Adam's life as a friend or family member,
you know, for me, that phrase holds so much meaning.
That is an indicator for me that the person that utters that phrase "gets" my son.
That means they understand him.
It was a witness to me they have his best interests at heart.
I am so thrilled for Adam. He was dancing from toe to toe after the meeting.
He is a special young man and I am so blessed to have him.
So blessed to have found a school in Yuma that is embracing his differences and abilities!
