Please enjoy the following opening excerpt...
I have the wonderful opportunity of introducing you to several of these families, in my new book; Blossom's of my Life.
Most of the families I have had the honor of working with to ensure their children with special needs were receiving the best education, I could possibly deliver.
Families of whom I have been able to watch their children learn and develop academically, socially and emotionally over periods of 1-10 years.
What an honor to be trusted with their children!
Each child is introduced in their very own chapter in this book.
Each chapter is written by a mother.
It is my hope that each of their stories will open hearts and bring forth their dauntless, loving, unselfish and remarkable journeys.
The meaning of my title:
The definition of Blossom is: 1. a flower or cluster
of flowers; 2. the condition or time of flowering.
This amazed me as I realized the significance of the
story I was about to write. You see, each of us will have a
time of flowering. Some take a little longer than others,
but, we each long to flower into a purposeful life.
Regenerated came up a lot in my search. This word
means rebirth. As a Christian, our rebirth is distinguished
from our first birth when we were born physically. The new
birth is a spiritual, holy birth that results in our being made
alive spiritually. It simply means a new birth, a new
beginning, a new order.
Who am I? I am a teacher, one with a new heart, a true heart to care
and love and nurture my special needs students.. I am the person who God is trusting
to care for their angels.
There are some who approach me and ask, “How do you do
it? I don’t think I could have the patience.”
My reply: “How can I not?”
