Connor’s Education Quest

Update posted by Michelle Kirsten On Aug 15, 2019

Connor is settling in at the new school after a rocky start... It is a bit far from home, so we are still adjusting to traffic... WOW!

He also got invited to his first BIRTHDAY PARTY! See, because he never fit in at his old school and the kids there couldn't quite "get" him, this is a big deal for us. He has been to birthday parties before, mostly because myself or his sister got invited, but this is his first real independent invitation. We are over the moon!

Please continue helping and sharing, the change in my boy is nothing short of a miracle some days.

The week started well, even though Connor was late the first day.... Transport is going to be an issue unless we can find a place between my work and the school. Connor is not pleased with the fact that it is still a school with (gasp! shock! horror!) RULES.... He says today that he misses his current school, and I tried to explain to him why we need to change. Eventually I had to show him what I wrote here for the campaign. He teared up

"Mom, how do you know me so well? And why did you say I was suicidal?"

"I had to be honest, Connor, and I had to make people understand that you need a change"

He wasn't pleased that I was airing our dirty laundry, I can tell you that.

All in all, though, it will be worth it. I can't wait.
