Tyler started Pre-K this week.
I did not receive any frantic calls from the school. I did not receive any angry calls from the school.
What I have received is the support from caring teachers. Teachers willing to work with his issues. Teachers willing to change his pull-ups. Teachers buying him special quiet time toys. Teachers helping me figure out his food issues.
What an amazing, amazing blessing.
Today is just the third day. A teacher walked by while I was talking to the principal about Tyler’s food and gave him his name tag without me having to tell her Tyler’s name.
After walking so long in the deep and dark places, I find myself in a fragrant field.
I have to pause. The beauty of it is overwhelming. Would I have noticed it without having come upon it from the dark?
Thank you, Homer Adkins Elementary School in Jacksonville, AR.
You have no idea how much you are helping my family and my child.
This is a new chapter with new players. People who choose to care. An answered prayer so long whispered in the dark. A new belief born and a dying one revived.
From my heart,
