Because I did not have regular internet access, very few people knew the depths of my despair and extreme feelings of isolation in California. Upon leaving the Atascadero house my world crumbled. With the exception of the death of Adam Sontag that was the lowest I have ever been in my life. However, I’ve always been one to focus on the positive– not to come across as ‘fake’– but I’d much rather count my blessings than my sorrows…..so most probably were unaware of the extent of my suffering.
Such a tremendous burden was lifted from my shoulders when the state agreed to pay for Adam’s childcare during my working hours. At zero out of pocket expense to me he attends a top-notch area preschool from 7:30 am until 5:30 pm, Mondays through Thursdays. I could have collapsed and cried tears of holy joy when my phenomenal social worker called and told me this news.
Inspirations Preschool Center is a godsend, quite literally. It reminds me so much of his former preschools in the Memphis area and the facilities, curriculum, and teachers are incredible. Adam loves his new school– and it’s an added bonus that our grocery bill is substantially cut because the program includes breakfast, lunch, and two snacks. Most likely he will be bumped up to the 4-5 year old class beginning next week. What a smart boy!
I cannot wait to post photos of the awesome pirate themed playground. My coworker and I were joking about how cool it was [he was familiar with it through the churches in the area] and how we wished our offices could be on a pirate ship. We’ll be seeing clients on the deck. Walk the plank when your appointment is terminated. 😉
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
