School pictures arrive!

A couple of weeks ago I shared my letter to the school photographer at my children’s public school and revealed the complex feelings I have when strangers photograph my son with special needs.

Well, the pictures arrived today — and they look fantastic! There’s a big smile, bright eyes, a little signature hand clapping at the bottom of the frame. Even the class photo, which often looks like a band of rogues and renegades, is adorable this year. Every child looks special and happy.

As I practice these new skills of getting clear on what we need and want and then asking for it — it’s so great to have some successes under my belt. For a long I was so afraid of having my heart broken by a “no” that I retreated and isolated myself. I don’t expect that asking for help will always have a positive outcome, but it’s a true relief that it did work out this time.
