My second son Jbird graduated from PreK last May and he is headed to Kindergarten. I am so proud of him because he had a bit of a rough start with speech delay and other issues. A year ago today he was barely stringing 2 words together. After countless therapy, early education learning and multiple psychology evaluations, our Jbird started talking more. It wasn't just talking, it was expressing himself using words. Before we knew it, he was potty trained and we blinked again and he was making new friends.
It's been an emotionally and physically exhausting past 2 years but it is so nice to be here today. We weren't sure if we were going to hold him back for a year or not. His early education team and speech pathologist all agreed that not only he was ready for Kindergarten, he was ready to actually join the general education group. Trust me when I tell you that this is amazing news. We are elated and so thankful that our Jbird will be going to Kindergarten next year in the general education class.
