E-Mail From Holly’s Mom

Hi Mary,

Thank you for your encouragement to move Holly into Employment Services. Sometimes as parents, when things are going well, we get too comfortable with the arrangements as they are, and talk of making changes is unsettling. We realize we cannot deny Holly the opportunity to move on to this next level if it is in her best interest.

We appreciate your concern for Holly and your confidence in her abilities.
