Grieving is interesting. It comes so unexpected.
We had another meeting for Elise today. I didn't realize this meeting was to determine eligibility for Elise to enter special education in the school system. Of course I have always known this was what would happen and it was no surprise when yes she did qualify. What I didn't expect was how I felt when I signed my name declaring that I had a child in special education.
Like I've said, I know it and am fine but when it came to it in the moment my heart stung a little. This was not what I had ever expected or planned on. Children in special education have to be below the 7th percentile. Elise is in the first percentile and below. She is now on the same level of communication that Cal is on according to tests.
I know I am getting stronger though because that moment of grief came and went fairly fast. Bring on special ed!
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
