...which we could all use these days.
It is hard to believe that it has been almost 2 years since my nephew Nathan was finally transferred into the full time custody of his father. He has done nothing but flourish amazingly since then!!!
When Nathan moved in with his Dad he was 8 years old. He didn't know how to use eating utensils properly. He had zero social skills at all. He rarely attended school. I actually felt pretty sorry for the teacher that inherited Nathan as a student mid-year even though Nathan has always been a bright boy. I knew it couldn't have been easy to take on a charismatic red head that was easily the most disruptive kid on the block!
My how things have changed! Nathan's Dad has worked very hard to give Nathan a better life. And last night Nathan's Dad called me to let me know that at his recent teacher/parent conference, the teacher told him that Nathan is one of his favorite students! Now, I know that I am biased. However, I couldn't be more pleased to find out that the absolute 'wonderfulness' that is Nathan is shining through!
