Six years ago, when Noah was in first grade, I made one of the toughest decisions in my life. My boy's self esteem was so low that his little heart was breaking in his traditional school. I knew that there had to be somewhere that understood him. So I decided to sacrifice SO much, pull him out of his school in October and send him to Upland Hills.
For three years I drove 2+ hours a day to make sure he went to a school that "saw" him. Today, we only drive 1+ hours a day, but it's still worth it. The tuition, the drive, they're all worth it. I knew this before today because of the smile on his face and the community of forever friends/family we've all made at this school.
But, yesterday I was stunned when I was asked to give my "ok" for a new video that the school was to release to advertise more about what their school is about.
I was stunned when I watched it. Noah told me he was working on a film at school. But, I had no idea. It's made me laugh so many times and now when I think about it, I cry with gratefulness and with the knowledge that yes, I made the right decision. I'm grateful they saw this genius in him...
