My First Speech

Yesterday I gave my first ever “speech” (I use that term loosely since I didn’t write anything down) for the Elgin Wraparound Fundraiser. I video taped it (first time I’ve done that too, it was an exciting day) and am posting it here to share with all of you.

    Awesome speech! I’m trying to imagine what it would be like to send my sons to schools that didn’t do anything for developmental issues—yikes!

  3. Holly says:

    Thanks, Jonathan. i’m hoping to do more, maybe next time I’ll do a little prep work thought.

    It’s a challenge sending her to school everyday. She’ll come home in tears or screaming and yelling. At her age (14) you’d expect to blame it on adolescent hormones but that’s not always the case. I remind myself “And this too shall pass.” She’ll be in high school in the fall and the social worker there has a assured me there are kids there a lot worse off than Rian. The goal for now is just to get through the next month and a half without any blood shed in the classroom. :S
    Keep your fingers crossed for us, please. šŸ™‚

      Thanks, Rachel. I realized I spelled speech wrong – I was thinking “speak” in my head. lol
      I appreciate all prayers. I hope all is well with you and yours. šŸ˜‰
