A lot of sad changes today....

Today was one of Parker's ABA therapists last day. She is my very favorite one and she's moving to Utah. She is going there to get her PHD. She is so smart, funny and nice. I am going to miss her so much. She has so many good ideas and really knows how to work with Parker. She could always get him to do what she wanted. I felt safe that Parker was getting the best care when he was with her. Now she is moving on to better things. I tried not to be too sad while she was here today but I'm really going to miss her. When she got in her car to drive away it finally hit me, Parker and I had to have a long hug. She was not only a therapist, but she felt like a friend. At least we will still keep in touch. I hope she can be a role model for Molly and that Molly will grow up to be like her. I wish her all the best. Another really sad and upsetting thing that happened today was that I found out that Parker can't go to his same autistic preschool next year. They have too many kids so he'll have to go in his district. They are just hiring a new teacher for it. I don't want any other teacher, I want the one he's got. I love the aids, the speech teacher and the school. It's so unfair. I said that I would even drive him but they said no. I am so sad. Parker will never find a better teacher than the one he has. She has so much energy and great ideas. She always looks at things positively and she just loves Parker. Molly really likes her too. We will all be very sad. Why do teachers have to come and go. What if I don't like this new teacher? What if Parker doesn't? I'm pretty worried about it. What a sad day. On a small up note, Molly is with her Dad going to pick out a new hamster. I hope this one lives for a long time. Wish us luck and here's hoping he doesn't run all night on the wheel, lol.

You sound like my postings on the overwhelmed feeling with teachers leaving! Maybe you will be pleasantly surprised and the new teachers, school and therapists will be awesome. :) Hope the new hampster is awesome, too! You may just have to take the wheel out at night! LOL

Thanks. I meant to post on yours. It's so tough with they get used to a teacher. Parker will be going to 2 new schools next year. A typical preschool and his new autistic preschool. Here's hoping the teachers will be awesome for me and you. (Or you and I, however it's supposed to be, lol.)

Hugs! I know just how you feel. This Friday is Daniel's last day with his GREAT speech therapist. I don't know who he'll have next or if they even have another one lined up. I'm happy that she's going on to better things, but I'm sad because she was soooo great with Daniel. Best of luck to you and Parker!
