Wow, can I tell you how crappy it feels when others don't see the same wonder in your child that you do?!? My head knows it's about limited spaces (applying for K rather than PreK = just a few spots in each school), needing financial aid, my quirky and slow-to-warm-up girl, random chance, but, still, it feels yucko. It also makes me me feel more protective of dd--which is an interesting response on my part and one I need to think about some more. Like I see and know this hidden gem but, if it's not readily apparent to others, she needs me by her side all the more...or something like that.
Anywho, it will all work out. My life is in a total jumble -- graduating, don't know where or what my job will be, will keep dd on the wait lists at the pvt schools and await to hear which public school she gets into (public schools here are all lottery, no neighborhood school).
Just breathing deeply and enjoying my amazing diamond in the rough or a daughter.

Dd: Conceived when I was 42 after 2 years ttc. Conceived on 6th IVF cycle after 2 bfn's and 3 m/cs.
