Absolutely Not

...and when I asked if Addie would ever be able to attend public school, he replied, "Absolutely not.".

For each and every one of you who never gave up on my sweet, beautiful angel and for those of you who never gave up on me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I can never thank you enough for your support and love.

Your prayers and support got us to today.

Today was the day that never should have been.

It is our stepping stone to the miracles that lie ahead.


I have so many little stories to share about this beautiful day in our lives, but honestly, I am beyond exhausted.

Addie had a wonderful first day, but her night has not been so good.
From the time we got her home, she was hysterical.
It took me an hour to calm her down and by that time, we were running out the door to get Julien from football.
It was very apparent that she was so very tired and I can only imagine the sensory overload from today.
It all had to be so overwhelming for her.

I know you all have been waiting for updates, and I appreciate the emails, phone calls and text messages, so here is a sneak peek at my beautiful princess on her big day!

So much more to come very soon!

This isn't attitude you see, it's the little primate in need of her sweater!

I think this is going to be my favorite picture from this morning.

She is so proud of her backpack and lunch bag.

I desperately wanted Addie to have a say in what she wore for her big day.
I have every reason to believe that her favorite color is blue.
Just recently, we ran across a picture of an owl that she seemed to really like.
When I happened upon a blue dress with an owl, I knew my search was over.
It's cotton, it's comfortable and it fits her little personality.

Addie was getting a little more nervous.
She was looking to Julien to make it better.

Julien started his last year at the Middle School.

He had a fantastic first day as well!
I think it is going to be a great year!

I thought of those words from the doctor today while thinking of Addie at big girl school. Doctors are practicing medicine anyway but should never be allowed to put limitations on anyone especially our chunkus. I am glad her and Julien had a great day; so did Gab.
