"My sounding proud or positive in any way had a great deal to do with you both and your program ... I may have felt successful enough at acceptance. But celebration is something else. I am celebrating (my child's) journey and mine. I was terrified of facing the school situation. I was even apprehensive about online group therapy. But I trusted my gut. It paid off, so I guess I learned to trust myself. This experience has been very freeing really. And that’s a lot to celebrate!"
