Monday was the last IEP for my son – IEP is Individual Education Plan. He is 18, will be 19 next month and he graduates high school in June. It just seems the years have gone by so quickly.
I remember after he was born and looking into the cradle not believing that was MY baby. Wow he was in my belly and now here he was. I checked on him every minute because I was worried about SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Symptom). He walked at 13 months, he first held on to any piece of furniture he could to steady himself. Then letting go and taking those first few steps..ahh.
And now here we are another letting go point, of him not depending on me for a ride here or there, me cooking his meals. Me letting go and letting him make his own way in this world. He is one of the lucky ones that know what they want to do in life. I want to watch him follow his passion and capture his dream. I’m proud of him and I know when he puts his mind to it he can do what he sets out to do.
