I had a nice long talk with one of Miss Kat's teachers for the summer. She told me what they would be working on for the 5 weeks and overall how they handle things like language and reading during the year. She threw out the bomb....
"Would you ever consider moving to another place for services for Miss Kat?"
I don't know....maybe.
I have always promised myself that we would do whatever it took to get Miss Kat the education she needs. We even discussed, when she was solely an ASL user, moving to Fremont when she was older, but this is huge.
There are some great pros. She would get an education from people who truly understand her needs, from top professionals. She would have access to a really wonderful school that does what it does with excellence.
There are HUGE cons. Our entire family lives in a one block radius. Both mine and Hubby's parents, her cousins, even her great-grandparents are 10 minutes away. We actually have a village, who has that today?? (Plus, jobs, finding a place to live, blah, blah blah...I can deal with that)
So, what is more worthwhile? Literacy and language or love and family?
What's your vote?
