As I sat there,
surrounded by teachers,
Emily’s speech therapist,
the child study team coordinator,
Emily’s occupational therapist
& my own husband,
I was thankful. *sigh*
Thankful that I was surrounded
by so many people
who all had one objective.
To help our daughter grow & learn.
Emily will return to preschool disabled for the upcoming school year 2010-2011 and is eligible for an extended school year.
