We looked into that, actually. Unfortunately it's too expensive and there's no financial aid avaliable for it. sad.png I was so disappointed when we realized we couldn't do it

No. Not for private school, but he's written letters to the school. The school called cps on us back in September because they didn't believe the kids need the medicines they're on (I have a biological child who has issues too), and our pediatrician explained everything to the case worker and got our case shut. I love him lol.

Check into Step Up for Students. It's a very good program. Probably too late in the year this year, but you can get on the list for next year.

You might have noticed, I'm not all there myself.

Hello,

 

Your description of Connor reminded me a bit of my nephew Tristan.  Tristan is my biological nephew, my elder sister's son.  When he was about 8 months old, he was doing well, had started baby talking.  He was a little behind physically, crawling and walking and his teeth took forever to come in.  At this point in his life, everything turned upside down.  His father was stationed in Germany, and my sister had been having horrible back/leg pain.  They medivaced her to Walter Reed when she could no longer walk due to the pain.  My mother flew to Germany and brought Tristan and his older sister here to Utah to take care of them during what we thought would be my sister's rehab from back surgery.  Tristan didn't know my mother well because they lived overseas, he did warm to her in the few days from her picking him up and getting him here.  Then we found out that my sister had a cancerous tumor in her hip.  My parents flew to D.C. to be with her and Tristan and his sister were left with my younger sister, my husband and me to take care of them.  So the second time in two weeks his little world was turned upside down.  We were lucky that Tristan's mom got into a clinical trial at a cancer institute here in Salt Lake City, and her husband got a humanitarian transfer back to the AFB here.  Tristan was reunited with his parents, and a new normalness ensued.  About two months later Tristan got croup so badly he quit breathing and had to be rushed to the E.R..  At that point he quit talking and backslid a bit.  The doctor's thought he had just had too much stress.  My sister passed away right after his fourth birthday.  

 

Tristan is now almost 16.  He spent much of his early elementary time in resource (special ed) to get him working on grade level.  He had Speech and OT as well.  As a sophomore he is in reg ed (has been since junior high), he has to work harder than many students to stay there, but he does it.  He is still not terribly coordinated, and has a slight lisp (he started talking again at about 2 1/2 years old), but he is one of the sweetest, most loving kids I have ever met.
