It’s only the second week of school and we have received 2 notes home. Moving across country has been extremely difficult for us all, but my son is having an extremely hard time settling in.

I know that this too shall pass, but it breaks my heart to see him floundering. I am trying to be the best advocate for him, but navigating IEPs and learning the nuances of an new school district and it’s bureaucracy has been a huge challenge.

Every morning as he heads into class, my heart seizes with fear. I pray that his anxiety relents and that his true personality shines through. He is such a sweet, funny and gentle soul. Once the kids see him for who he truly is, they’ll love him.

I thought parenting would get easier as they grow older, but it’s just the opposite. Sleep deprivation is nothing compared to this agony…
