These past few weeks have been very difficult with Camryn. I feel like something is missing academically and with her adaptive skills. Whenever I get to this point with Cam, I go into action mode.
Earlier this week, Camryn’s teacher sent home a progress report that shared that she was reading on a first grade half-year level. I was happy at first and then felt badly about it. Camryn is supposed to be in 6th grade. The gap has clearly widened. Sometimes I roll with it, sometimes I feel the punch. I felt it!
I have met with the district, researched reading programs, reached out to different agencies, but was very upset about it on Friday morning.
I ambiguously shared my feelings with Dave on Friday morning, but was too upset on the inside to really talk about it. As I was leaving for work he said what I wrote on the post it note above. I cried the entire way to work. I was overwhelmed by his love and support. Dave trusts me 100% to make the right decisions for Cam. But I just knew by the way he was saying it, that he knew it was a God thing and we needed to lean on him.
When I got to work, I wrote those words he said and stuck them to my desk as a reminder to focus on Dave’s positive outlook.
Around 11 on Friday morning, I received a phone call from an agency that is going to start providing services for Cam.
We can either go to their clinic or receive services at home. I shared that going to the clinic would be very difficult for our family, but we would make it work.
The voice on the other end told me the services could come to our house and if we choose that option, the therapy is 100% covered by insurance.
In July our insurance changed to Aetna. This agency that will be providing services is out of network with my previous insurance that I have had for the past 16 years.
God is so good. This is a result of prayers and when it got to difficult for me, Dave stepped up and put his trust in God.
Because of prayer and perseverance, we are opening a new chapter for Camryn and that fills me with such a joy.
When I called Dave, I could barely get the words out. I didn’t need to, he helped to fill in the blanks.
The system is so hard to navigate, but I have always trusted that the Lord will do exactly what Dave said he would do, provide for Camryn.
Please send us prayers, blessings and love as we begin this new chapter.
