Another surpise!

I got an email today from Lois...she's one of the ladies I went to Tampa with (she works for the ISD). Anyways, she wrote to tell me that the Mason-Lake ISD was nominating ME for the Michigan Council for Exceptional Children’s Exceptional Parent Award for 2008! ME. They want to nominate ME. I'm still stunned. Here's the link to the MCEC website.

I'm going to be humble for a moment and say that I don't think that I do anything that any other parent wouldn't do. For my kids, I do anything. But, I've always believed that if I don't advocate for them, WHO WILL? Yeah, I feel blessed that my kiddos are healthy, bright and good all around kids. They've all had their stuggles and I know that Anna will have more than the average kid, but I encourage them all the same.

I don't know if I will win, but I'm still in shock to be nominated and that the ISD thinks that highly of me! Wish me luck!!

You truly deserve the award Melissa! I'm so VERY proud of you and all you have done in the arena of Deaf & Hard of Hearing children. When you open your own agency, remember me (I'll write the grants for you - lol). Love you lots and keep me updated!!!!

I think it's in February, around the 28th. Not sure. I will be in New Orleans from the 24th-27th, so it could be a busy month!
