They asked me a bunch of questions about our home life. Whether we are stable, how many siblings he has.....you know the background stuff.
The psychologist came in and talked to me for a while. Then the head of the department said, "In the next three weeks we will give you a call and let you know who his teacher is and all that stuff." I looked at her and asked, "So he's in?" She said "Oh yes!!" I woohoo'ed and she laughed. I am so excited for him. My level of hope for my boy increased 10 fold from the drive up to the drive home. I'm so hopeful and nervous for this upcoming year.
The funny and amazing thing is, that as I was explaining this to my In-Laws my Father-in-Law started asking questions about the location of the school. I told him, and he chuckled. He started telling me about his experience while he was in the state Legislature. He was asked to support a bill opening a school for children with Autism. He said at the time he was very uneducated with Autism, but was convinced this was a good thing. This is the bill that is funding the Northern Utah Autism Program. I love my Father-in-Law for being open to the needs of special needs kids even before we had one of our own.
