On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

51 weeks

It's been 51 weeks since I brought all THREE of my children to the same school at the same time with the anticipation of picking all THREE of my children up at the same time from the same school.

One year ago, the Tuesday after I returned from Orlando, Sissy went to RTC. Today she rejoined the general education population with an IEP and will be spending half of her day in small group classes with her brother. They will come home with the same homework. They will be there to support each other through the rest of their school years.

Finally, I have the satisfaction other mothers have when they pull away from the school car rider lane: I'm satisfied that all THREE of my children are getting the best possible education.

And it only took seven years.

Unbelievable that we are finally at this place. Surreal. Of course, Sissy screamed for thirty minutes last night before bed but otherwise, life is great!

Awesome news! So the work being assigned to AB isn't too easy for Sissy? Or is that remedied during the time Sissy spends in the regular class?
