Our family has a lot respect for Meadows Elementary, we don’t know what there isn’t to like. My wife and I adopted Gage and his younger brother Wesson in 2009. Prior to that, the boys suffered some personal family issues. The boys had to overcome many challenges over their years at Meadows. The staff, teachers, counselors and administrators at Meadows worked with our kids over the years. Their compassion and understanding toward our boys and all students surpasses anything I’ve seen in my life.
As a parent and grandparent, I want my kids to know that everything happens for a reason. Focus on one thing at a time. You can have it all, but not at once. Plan ahead, but your plans will definitely change when the time comes. Trust your instincts. And it’s okay to be unsure about your purpose in life, take a leap of faith in yourself.”
