The appeal worked!

I am so excited. Yesterday I got a call from the county organization that turned Deklan down for case management a couple of weeks ago. I wrote a four page letter for appeal. Some of that letter I posted a few blogs ago on the 15th. Yesterday the lady in charge called me to thank me for the letter. She said it was exactly what she needed to learn more about Deklan. She also said that because of the letter they are moving him into the approved category and we should have our acceptance letter by the end of the week. YEA!! I'm not sure what all the benefits will entail but anything has to be better than nothing - which is what we have now.

Also, more good news for Deklan. I'm friends with Deklan's bus driver. She's really great. Anyway, she asked me yesterday if there was anything he could bring on the bus with him to keep him occupied. She said he's not a problem just really antsy - a lot of stimulation on the bus. She suggested putting a few cars in his backpack and she'd allow him to play with them on the bus. This actually excited me. With having so much opposition from the school (psychologist to be exact) I love having a person from the school that I can use to help my case if I need to. It's great. It's the little things that make me happy. lol.
