Special Needs

I had a follow up meeting today with the team of amazing women who are evaluating and working with the Lion. Up until now he's been in a main stream classroom and with Kindergarten around the corner we needed to regroup and figure out our plan of action.
We came together today to discuss their findings and their recommendations for next year.
The bottom line is that he's going to Wallace School next year and will be placed in a special needs kindergarten.
This is a very good thing for the Lion. The class is much smaller than where he is now (15 kids currently) and much smaller than some of the kindergarten classes (They average 25 kids) the special needs K has only 9 kids. The teacher is a certified special needs teacher so she will "get" the Lion.
This is a good thing. The recommendation came unanimous straight across the board. I trust these woman. They are all really good at what they do and I like them.
So why am I sitting here with a lump in my throat and a heavy chest?
