Best of luck to you and your daughter. My eyes filled with tears just reading your post. You have done a great job as their mother. Now is the time for you to enjoy the wonderful people they have become. Congrats to you and your two children!

Have a great trip up to Maryland. Give everybody a hug from me.


enjoy maryland, and the daughter!


Be proud of your kids, and I'll see you at the Sheep & Wool Festival! Yay!


Fabulous Greta. That is so wonderful to hear. Congratulations Daughter Bird and Son Bird on your many many accomplishments. On a side note, it is so wonderful to hear this. I future trip about all of my kids but Owen most of all. Naysayers are still out there...telling us what our children can't do or where they will have to be. I love proving them wrong. :)


Proof yet again of the amazing, talented, present, patient, determined, loving, open, strong, marvelous woman that you are.. You embrace life's challenges and reap the rewards of your hard work with such joy. I'm in awe of you, Greta.

I am just soooooo happy for you and your family. I'll miss you! Have a safe and wonderful trip. Give Bird Girl a big hug for me.

Greta you must have such a feeling of contentment right now...I have three kids who fit into the special education mold for various reasons and no matter where their needs fall it has always a struggle to have their needs met and addressed by the public education system
(all three are intellectualy gifted but have other special needs as well).
Isn't it marvelous to be able to prove the "educrats" wrong!

I am available to head up the Professional Yaysayers, Northwest Division!! That is beyond fantastic!


Greta you make me proud to be a Mom. What an example of beating the odds with love and strength and tenacity. I only know a tiny bit about your kids from what I've read recently but I think you shine today more than ever. Savour this trip with your daughter. I look forward to reading about it.


3 Huzzaaaas to Danger Girl and her side kick, Ultra Mom!


That is just awesome... all of it! I am so happy that you have been able to "prove the naysayers wrong" maybe they will think twice before nay-saying to the next mom. :)


Let's hear it for you and those great kids! What fantastic news! Have a wonderful time at MSWF--travel safely. You and your kiddos remain in my prayers. xxoo


This is just wonderful — kudos to your kids for their strength, perseverance and independence, and the same to their mom for helping them fulfill their potential. Enjoy the trip, enjoy your family!


I can't wait to meet you, Proud Mama! Actually, by the time you get this I will have met you. So I'll just say I'm glad we had so much fun!
