Let me get y'all caught up because I know I've not said a whole lot of what I've been doing behind the scenes here. After several months of reading about every possible reason as to why things have been the way they are, I kept coming back to one possibility that I honestly kept dismissing. Months of insulting conversations and emails from sanctimommies, months of side by side planning and evaluating with her teacher (no, I don't care for her and yes, I find her abrasive but we work with whatever we have for the betterment of our child) and my own constant observations and recordings in hopes of finding trends or clues to get the final piece of the puzzle that will shed some light on things.
So while others who know nothing of our family have been saying the most horrible of things about me and my family, I have been plugging away. Self-righteous emails full of wild accusation and belittling comments made about my child, myself and my husband. To those who sent them, if attempting to tear someone else down in order to raise yourself up brings you joy then I hope you are beside yourself with glee. I don't take your ugliness to heart because I know that nothing that was written was true. The main focus of my husband and myself is to make sure that our children are happy, healthy and thriving. If one stumbles, we are there to pick them up - not yell at them for falling. While you sit there and attempt to point out the splinter in my eye, please be sure to remove the plank from your own first.
If the mean people learn only one thing from this post, I hope that it is to not make wild judgement calls when they don't have all the facts. Insulting a child is despicable in it's own right but insulting a child with a learning disability is just disgusting. Think before you speak.
