UPDATE-Choosing Our Focus

Hi Everyone,

This is an update on my last blog:

Today we signed the paperwork for Sarah to attend this new school.  She will start officially on Friday (just wrapping up a few things and getting her new bus schedule set).  It is a whirlwind, but we have a peace about this.

What truly meant a lot to me was her current teacher and our Autism Coordinator for the district, whom we have known since Sarah was 6, were in tears saying good-bye to us at the end of our meeting. (This new school is county based so Sarah will no longer be under our city’s school district.) This wonderful teacher has been through so much with Sarah’s non-stop crying and screaming these past two years.  She has seen Sarah at her worse and yet loves her.  The Coordinator has also been our advocate all these years and has been such a wonderful support.  I am very thankful God placed these ladies into our lives!  While it is hard to say good-bye (I cried, too!), I know they are putting Sarah in good hands at the new school.

Thank you for covering us in prayer!  You made a very tough decision into one filled with peace and reassurance.

Is it going to be an easy transition?  Probably not!  This is Sarah!! 🙂 Sarah might struggle a bit, but we know God goes before us and is in control.

I truly feel like 2 Thessalonians 3:16, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way.”

We truly are humbled and so thankful for people praying for our Sarah!  To know we have family and friends lifting us up in prayer during this time is so encouraging!

Thank you and bless you!

    Sweet sister, thank you for this update. We pray for Sarah every morning, and often throughout the day, and will pray your verse 2 Thes 3:16 specifically for all of you. I love you, Jill – I really, really do, and I miss our walks together. J And I love your profile pic – looking SASSY (but classy!) J

    Wow. I didn’t realize that the change was happening so soon. I’m praying for all of you for peace and a smooth transition. Love you, Jilly. Your faux aunt.

    Another adventure, in deed. Praying for Sarah’s adjustment and looking forward to hearing good things since God has surely directed you here.
