I am so sorry that we have failed you so miserably. We just wanted you to be challenged to find success, driven to have goals, and compelled to show respect to yourself and others.
Where did we go wrong?
I remember driving to school with you and singing ‘The Sunny Day’ song. And you making the progress in your speech and language therapy so rapidly and easily.
And then it all just…stopped. You had goals…but only if they fell into your lap.
You had dreams…but didn’t want to work at them.
We want you to be a respected and hard-working adult. Someone you would want to be friends with.
I wish I could turn back time to find what went wrong for you, and fix it.
But damn if I know when and where it happened.
I’m so sorry.
