Letter of Support:
May 4, 2012
Dear Mothers on a Mission:
Just want to say thank you for sending an advocate to my son's rescue. My son is 19 years old and has ++++++ . As you very well know, how hard it is to navigate a through his school . I have found it even more difficult just trying to keep my son in school according to his legal right to the day before his 22nd birthday.
On May 1, 2012 my son had his annual review meeting. Mothers on a Mission sent me an angel named Jean C even though I discussed with you I MIGHT have another advocate there. I explained that I did not know if this other advocate would be there and regardless you had Jean there for me, just in case there was a chance I might be attending alone. During troubled times with the staff at our high school during my sons meeting Jean remained professional and NEVER once raised her voice. Even though the staff who attended the meeting (my son's so called support team) yelled, screamed, made childish noises when Jean would speak and roll their eyes. Jean remained calm, obtained all information that would be pertinent to my son's case and walked away with her integrity and never once batted her eyes at the disgusting behavior the school demonstrated.
The next day I received a phone call from the director of my son's therapeutic day school (who also was in attendance at my son's iep) and was asked for the names and contact information of F**** advocates. She stated that she was impressed with the way they represented F**** and kept their cool. She also stated they were great advocates and they really demonstrated that they know what they were doing. She wanted to add their names to her list she has that she gives other parents who need help navigating the special system.
Mothers on a Mission, you not only help save the child you also help save the parents.
Thank you for being there.
