A couple of years ago I posted on here about my principal seeing a parent raise her hand to her son, who was one of my students, and folks said I should have called CPS. I didn't see it happen, and she didn't hit him, but I've thought about him many times since and regretted it. Last week I heard from the boy's father, He's seeking full custody, and asked for a letter of support. I had every text message and email between us saved. I never delete anything! I got a call from an investigator who said that my letter was very thorough and detailed, and that it corroborated everything dad was saying, which was that their son, who has autism, needed more stability than mom was able to provide. This man truly is an amazing father. He said that they had driven by the school recently, and even though his son was only with me for a month, and that was two years ago, that he pointed at the school and said my name. I hope that I was able to help. This little guy deserves a good life.
