My heart is holding space for you.

Elias is Elias. Elias is a complicated human being.

Just. Like. The. Rest. Of. Us.

I comprehend the whys of the bomb cyclone of paperwork in this day of so many fraudulent and greedy folks who have misused, abused, and made skeptics of the pursestring holders.


It is TOO MUCH. When I began as a SPED Educator back in the dark ages, there were only four pages…then the lawyers got ahold of it all…

We need not only person-centered care. We need family centered and human focused CARE that extends to all involved in the family—individual, parents, legal guardians, sisters, brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

The paperwork avalanche of paperwork has got to be reduced to just a small, short flurry once in a while, for everybody’s heart, mind and sanity.

The system doesn't see individuals, only categories, scores, and data on a page. It's enraging. And submitting to the heartless machine must be done to be responsible citizens, parents, guardians. Wish it were possible to escape the cold categorization without fear of relinquishing our own individual compassionate and loving power to the steel cold system. Life continues to deliver blows that fuel madness, sadness and a survivor's leather skin. ❤️

Oh Jamie and Greta, thank you so much for your words. They are fuel to my tired soul. ❤️❤️🙏🙏
