And really, it deserves it’s own blog so it’s all good.
During the meeting I was brought to tears by one of his teacher’s comments. I no longer even remember what lead up to this exactly but his teacher was commenting on how they keep pushing him and challenging to do more when she said this…this was her explanation…
“Because he can do anything. Anything.”
It wasn’t fluffy BS, it came out just so matter of fact…as just a throwaway…like everyone knows this.
I will never forget how I felt when I heard that. I cannot even tell you how ((fucking)) mind-blowing ((Sorry, I’ve been trying to be good that gets an f-bomb.)) it was to hear those words coming from his teacher.
I can say now that the entire nightmare of his kindergarten year IEP, the fights, the tears, the raging anger…every second was worth it to get here…to this school where everyone just knows that Caleb can do anything.
And right now my dad is shaking his head because he has been telling me my entire life. “Things always work out.” I can be a slow learner.
