I am not sure where to start to describe the contribution that you have been in our lives…You have been teacher and friend and confidant and an important partner in the learning and growing process that accompanies raising a child in this day and age. I have turned to you for guidance and advice and support and laughter. I have watched your children grow in mind and body and spirit. I have watched Jenna learn to read and write and work with numbers at a very young age and love every minute of it.
Jenna is now seven years old. I think she was barely three when we first came to My Special School. There has never been one single day that we were not happy to be going to school. As you know, I have felt that your influence has been so valuable that I have pulled Jenna out of Kindergarten and First Grade just to spend a day with you…and I look forward to doing the same this year! Being connected to you and your group is important to both Jenna and me.
Alice, always know that you are special and what a gift to this world you are.
We love you, Alice.
