I had teacher meetings today, and both boys are doing EXCELLENT in their classes and services. I'm so proud of them. Especially difficult child since he was the one that the hospital said was so disabiled that I should put him in a Therapy foster home or an institution. HA! He's proving them wrong..good for him. He's learning to read, do math, and he's EXCITED AND ENTHUESATIC about learning... I just knew the right environment, and positive reinforcement would help him break grounds on all the things they said he couldn't do. easy child is doing well to. Teacher said he learns extrememly fast, and is also enthuesatic about learning. YEAH!! I told all of this to a co-worker and she was almost in tears with me. She said, "see, all the hell you went through and hard work and fighting the system and never giving up in the last 16+ months are starting to pay off." Today when I stepped outside to walk down the block to grab lunch, I actually said to myself and god "Life is GOOD"!! I have never said that before. I've always had something on my shoulder, but for TODAY my shoulder has nothing on it and there was verification this morning that I've been right all along and it is making a difference. HAPPY TEARS OF JOY!!!
