    And yet, cops never were called on Q. I just always panicked if I saw them. I was always sure he had fallen apart.

    Along with the special needs programs for developmentally delayed kids, this new school has an alc program as well as an emotional /behavioral program. There's always one cop here but I drove up and there were other police cars. I'm happy to say my heart didn't flip out.

    I had to do some self talk but I wasn't really worried that it was Q.

    I told the woman behind the desk that I was dropping off medications, luckily Q saw me and came over to the door. He took the medications, said thank you, and gave me a high 5... and told me he would see me at 3.

    Compared to where we have been this is a great thing. As a small child he would tip over tables when I was at his school. Even in middle school I volunteered in the library, to help work on his learning to accept me when I would be in his school.
    And last year, as you all know, was heck.

    I need these moments to help me realize how far we've come.

    I know the feeling of that kind of fear. I am VERY happy you were able to talk yourself out of it and even happier that Q reacted to you the way he did. I know how he gets with cops around and glad it didn't seem to phase him this time. You have BOTH come a long ways. More high 5's to you BOTH (and an extra ((((HUG)))) to you!!

    I'm so glad the cops weren't there for Q, and thrilled he gave you a high 5. With all the ups and downs you go through, every "up" is a blessing.

    Yay for Q!!! And Good job to you. Glad he had such a great reaction when he saw you. I am sure the breath you took when it was over was a deep one of relief.
