Literally, tears running down my face. difficult child got an A in English (in college), a class he was sure he was going to fail. Sigh... he still has perception problems, LOL. But I am just so tickled and *so* proud of him!!!!! And I can't cheer lead too much in front of him because he's never done well with- praise, so I just *had* to come here and share with- you guys. Have hope. How your difficult child is at 6, 8, 11, 15, 18, is *not* necessarily how they will be forever (thank goodness).
