p.s. the meeting went well

Hi there Team-

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.

I'm not sure if you noticed that I got a little teary-eyed half way through our meeting today. Not only is my son making noticeable progress in an area that will be life changing for him and our family, but I looked around the table and saw a group of people who genuinely care about my child, and are using their years of experience to help my child communicate his needs.

This is a hard life. Most days are more difficult than my little heart ever imagined child rearing would be, and I want to sincerely thank each of you for helping Jake learn and grow. As parents of special needs children, we often feel diminished, sidelined, and generally not taken care of, and today I got to feel hope, and a sense of well-being I almost didn't recognize.

Thank you. Thank you-
