I can not express how thankful I am for the unbelieveable support we have received via the facebook group concerning our son Bradley. If you are stumbling across this blog and have no idea what I am talking about, please feel free to click on the above link “Bradley’s Story“. In short, Bradley is a 9 year old autistic child who was physically abused at the hands of his educators. These people have not been removed from teaching and Bradley has received no justice for the pain he has suffered. However, I am on a crusade to make it a law to have CAMERAS IN ALL SPED CLASSROOMS so that these children have a voice. So read Bradley’s Story, share it, encourage your family and friends to join the facebook group and write your local Congressman requesting cameras in SPED rooms. Reference Bradley’s story. I want Congressman from EVERY STATE flooded with requests. 🙂
That being said, in 24hrs, that support group gathered over 3000 members from around the world. It brings tears to my eyes to think that the “uncaring world” would be so taken with my son’s story. I am really touched. I have received countless words of encouragement and I have personally read each and every post that has been put on that group and every email that has came through the accounts. It means alot. A whole lot. Words can’t express how much it means. It is THAT much. 🙂
Today was our first day of home school for Bradley. I am going to be honest, it was my intent to start this in the fall, but when Bradley came home from his new school with injuries consistent with restraint (not abuse, but some what reasonable bruising all things considered), as a mother, I couldn’t send him back… for him or for me. Not that any of this is about me, but it was breaking my heart and driving me insane not knowing if he was safe. So I pulled him out and we are working with what we have available until I can come up with a solid plan… that will hopefully be in place next week.
I have to say, he is VERY receptive to being my student. Of course, it is new and with all things new, they are fun until they get old right? I will be adding a home school page here soon for those interested in following what we are doing at home.
