It just goes to show that if you give something a chance and you mix in a little help from God, things work out!  Harley has entered his 3rd week of preschool.  As many of you know, the bus was a huge issue for me.  I just couldn't put him on a bus each day ... my issue but just couldn't digest that!  God knew and he intervened!  Our babysitters husband offered to take Harley to and from school and I cant thank Glenn enough!  Glenn is EXTREMELY proud of Harley and  doesn't mind when someone confuses him for his Dad or Grandpa! So Glenn, THANK YOU!

I LOVE his teacher!  Absolutely love her! The teacher's aid is GREAT too!  and he has the sweetest group of kids in his class!  7 including Harley.  It's especially cute how the girls "mama" him!  I was lucky enough to be able to take Harley to and from school today!  It's amazing how many people stop and smile at him and he waves to everybody!!!  One of the little boys in his class was waving bye and saying bye Harley as we walked down the hallway ... one of the teachers stopped to blow kisses!  I love it!  Oh, and did I mention he has Yoga on Wednesdays!  Yes! he does (boy I wish I could sneak in and take a few pictures! Maybe his teacher will do me the honor!)

So, things are going well and Im just going to take one day at time!  Here are some more pictures to enjoy!

Have a nice nap Harley!
Each day the teacher sends home a progress report!  Its great to be part of his day even when I cant!  His teacher said that she read a story to the class and in one part she pretended to cry.  She said that Harley crawled up into her lap, put his head on her shoulder and patted her back to say.. Its ok!   She commented that she must be a great actress :) 

Here are some of what Harley has done in school:

I had to take a picture (sorry for the darkness) but it says in comments: Harley looks so handsome in his uniform!

Fantastic Deb! I can imagine how hard it is to let go, but he seems to really be loving it and thriving there.

    I am the Mother of 4 wonderful children.  My youngest son was born with Down syndrome and he opened my eyes to a whole new world.  I have been lead to advocate for orphans with special needs all over the world.  I would love to adopt  but until then, I will shout for these children as loud as I can!  Click here for more information:

    Preston - he was almost mine. We were unable to proceed with his adoption. Because he is located in a country that has banned US adoptions, Preston waits. Please pray for his health and happiness. Pray for hearts to change and the ban be lifted.
