Cody’s Story…

An inspirational note to share…. I was so afraid leaving Cody at Noah’s Landing to start his new life. So many uncertainties. So many fears. So many crazy emotions. I’ve always been his go to, his rock, his everything. And now… he’s braving his new life without us.  I often wonder (still) if he will be okay without us right by his side.

Cody was back in Michigan for the last 8 days visiting. He was bored out of his mind, unhappy, lost, no direction, he watched his iPad for hours on end, he was incredibly annoyed with us going back in to parent mode, and asked to go back to his new home everyday he was here.  He has just boarded the plane. All by himself. I sit here alone watching the aircraft push back in awe of this young man we have raised. All of the ups and downs past and present, the tears, the joy, the everything we all know as parents of special kids, emotions are high but it’s all good. He is happy. He’s going home and, I still can’t believe it.
To our new family at Noah’s Ark…I share this with you all as I know you can all relate. It’s not easy. It’s never going to be easy. It’s the journey God gave us. We do the best we can and make the best decisions we know how. Our family is beyond grateful for this opportunity for our special guy. Our kids are so much more capable than what we could ever imaging.
Thank you to the founders for changing our lives.
