Dear Casem, Jery, and Sukay,
Again thank you for checking up on me to see how I'm doing. I've been pretty busy this week trying to figure out what to do with my son and school for him. Of course, all of this increased my anxiety ten-fold, I really don't know how I've gotten through this with out having an anxiety attack. But I did get through it and have now enrolled my son in the local Charter school and he started today. I think/hope that this is the answer for him - the classes each have 6-12 students in them, much smaller than the regular high school where there can be upwards of 30+ plus students in one class. Jake just doesn't do well in that kind of a setting. I am so hoping that once his grades improve he will be able to see that he has great potential to do anything he wants to and his self-esteem and confidence will improve.
Luckily, my oldest son was available to take Jake and I to the school and join us for the meeting with the Director. All three of us got a great vibe about this school and feel this is the right choice for Jake. I really went out of comfort zone on this one as I had to go to the school and to the high school to sign paperwork. But I did it.
Thank you all again for caring enough to ask about me, this just proves once again that HW really is family. Please keep us in your prayers that this is the right choice for Jake.
