First Day of School

We met Garren's homebound teacher yesterday. We are so blessed to have such great people working with us at Piedmont High School. She came to the house and worked with Garren for a little while. Then we talked about our plan and goals for Garren regarding school.

Friday I am taking Garren to school for a visit. We are going to go through and visit his classes, following his schedule. Yes, I'm going back to high school. I'm not sure what to think about that. Last time I was in high school all I wanted to do was get out of there! (I just hope I don't get sent to the principal's office like I used to!)

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Garrison. Garrison is one of the many children at our church who has been praying for Garren every day since he went into the hospital in February. The faithfulness of these young kids continues to amaze me. Thanks Garrison!

Continue to pray for the assistant that will be hired to work with Garren at school. A perfect fit will be crucial to the success of Garren's reentry into school. I know God already has that special person picked out. Pray for the wisdom of those at the school who will be interviewing and hiring this person.

And one more thing - don't forget to come out and eat at Jersey Mike's Subs in Monroe on Friday! They will be donating 20% of the proceeds to help cover Garren's medical expenses.

God continues to be faithful through everyone you come in contact with on this very long and tough adventure. Your faithfulness to not give up on the situation is inspiring as well.

...and Garrison had the pleasure of meeting of the most inspiring, gracious and strong people God has put on this earth...another being your son. Thank you for continuing to let us share in your experience as painful as I know it has to be somedays to sit down and write. We will continue to lift you, your family and especially Garren up in prayer. Waiting to see what amazing things God will do with Garren next, Melissa
