This day is definitely bitter sweet. It is a day that I’ve been looking forward to for about a year. I had hit burn out pretty badly after 9 years as a Behavior Aide and had decided to take a year off. Then 4 weeks ago, God sent our life into warp drive! Rob has a new job in a wonderful city, I have to get the house ready to sell, the girls are entering the next phase of their lives, our family dynamic is going to radically change, and I will be a stay at home mom again. WOW!! I consider myself pretty easy going but this is alot in a short amount of time. The hardest part will be leaving the little girl I’ve been with for the better part of 3 years now. She has been the toughest but most rewarding assignment I’ve had so far. I love her like a daughter and when she smiles, it just melts the heart. Being with her 1-1 for so long, it made it hard to really see her progress. She has come so far, and I am SO proud of her. She will probably never understand this, or really care, but that’s OK. She will always be in my heart, like one of my own children. The laughter, the tears, and definitely the stories to last a lifetime.
On to the next great adventure!!
