Our Tiffany Will Be Graduating 
High School and College

May 2014

Eric and I are so very proud to announce that our Tiffany will be graduating from High School and from College this May.  Tiffany elected to attend an Early College Academy which required her to attend both High School and College at the same time.  This was no easy task but she rose to the occasion and she has excelled.  She will have two degrees conferred upon her the first of which will be a Distinguished High School Diploma and secondly she will receive her Associates Degree from College. 

Tiffany started out life as a premature baby born at only 28 weeks gestation.  She was diagnosed with Epilepsy by age one and Mild (CP) Cerebral Palsy by age two.  After years of Physical Therapy, Occupational and Speech Therapy, Tiffany overcame most of her limitations.  Then in school she was about two years behind her classmates and was in resource classes up until Middle School.  While in Elementary school here in Texas she worked with a wonderful lady that brought Tiffany from two years below her grade level to two years above her grade level. 

In Middle School Tiffany began to shine becoming a highly achieving student and beginning to author her first novel which is still a work in progress.  One day she ran home and told me all about this new school that she wanted to attend.  I did my research and even though the schedule and workload would be difficult I knew she could do it and do it she did!  

Tiffany gets up at 5 AM every morning and she returns home around 5 PM every day.  During that time she has worked not just at school but at home as well.  She has put everything she has into her success at her school and we are so very proud of her.  She is a hard working and highly self-motivated young lady.  She knows what she wants and she isn't afraid to work for it.  How many people can say that about their children these days?  

Here is Tiffany when she was very small.

Tiffany will be going to live in Korea for a few years with us.  We decided to wait for her to go to college and further her education for now.  We felt the opportunity to live in Korea was a once in a lifetime chance and we could just not pass that up.  We are confidant that living in another country will afford Tiffany an education in and of itself. 

She was accepted at several colleges but her favorite was Hollins University in Virginia.  She will in the future be attending college somewhere and furthering her education in Literature. 

Tiffany dreams of one day being a writer...

And if I know our Tiffany...

She will do just that...

Here's to all the Graduates and their families!
