(Preschool) Graduation Day

"We'll remember always
Graduation Day"
-Beach Boys














This little girl here... she changed our lives. 
She showed us that there ARE typical kids out there who will want to be Little Bird's friend and will LOVE her for who she is- without focusing on the things she can't do...yet.



I saved the best for last...

"The Angels hung around"
-Rilo Kiley
You never know who's gonna come into your life and change it for-effing-ever.
Little Bird with her advocates. I love these girls. And if you're reading this, Lena and Laura, I have an extra bedroom and I'd like you girls to move in and be with us FOREVER. Just putting it out there :)

I held it together pretty well through the (very long) ceremony, but when it was time to leave I lost my shizz. Tears. Streaky mascara. It wasn't pretty.
