Not Forgetting - Little and Promise

In mid-May we were approached with an opportunity to send Little to a new School - Promise Christian Academy.  What's Promise? Well, read this from their website:
"Promise Christian Academy was founded seven years ago to service children with multiple disabilities. Our school integrates academic excellence and high nurture in a small classroom setting; we serve students who require Speech/Language Therapy and intensive Occupational Therapy support. As one of only a handful of schools in the nation that does so with a faith-infused foundation, Promise allows students with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and other pervasive developmental delays, the encouragement to develop to their highest potential."
Doesn't it sound wonderful? We have never considered sending Little here because of specific barriers but when we were approached in May the question was, "What if there were no barriers? Would we WANT to send her there?"

We went to visit and Honey's response was, "Can you give me even one reason that we wouldn't send her there?" Little spent half a day in class there and her response was, "When do I get to go back there?"

So, we have filled out an application and are waiting to see if the Lord removes the barriers that seem like mountains to us.  Ooooh, wait - faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, eh? Well, not the faith but the God we have faith in! Pray with us as we seek His will. . .

Oooooohhhhhhh--I'll be praying for this to work out! I think I have a secret dream to work there as an OT one day if we were to be called to stay in St Louis and my kids were all in school. I'll ask that God will be pleased to bless your family in this way!!!

Wow! What an opportunity! I will absolutely pray that God would remove those obstacles and can't wait to see what he does.

Praying to the Blessed Mother to intercede on Little's behalf! Every prayer counts..."Hail Mary full of Grace the Lord is with you."

I am most certain that Little has a place at Promise...barriers or no barriers. God is working out the details we can't even begin to fathom.
