The Best News I've Had in a Long Time

Last Friday we got the call we've been waiting 3 months for.

Fox was admitted into the new school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need to express a big thank you to the principal at the school who decided to allow Fox to transfer. When he called The King to let him know the decision had been made, the principal was very kind and expressed his regret that the process had taken so long.

A big, big, big thank you needs to go to our wonderful visual impairment rep at the school district, Mrs. Robinett. She gives her whole heart and soul to her job, and the students are so blessed to have her on their side. I know her impassioned support was vital to Fox's approval.

So what does this mean to Fox? Daily access to his braille teacher and all her resources. Peers who also know what it is like living and dealing with a degenerative disease. A bright, open floor plan with wide hallways.

Changing schools will not make everything perfect. This will be Fox's 3rd elementary school, and that has weighed heavily in our minds. But he is a strong, resilient child who makes friends easily and has been loved by all his teachers.

It's time to celebrate!!!
