Daughter's Reaction

Program Manager was convinced that Daughter knew I was looking for a placement. She suggested she was reading my text messages or my email. I was skeptical, but considered it was possible.
When Daughter got home this evening I told her to come sit down, I had some good news. She asked me how good the news was. I told her to come in and have a seat and I'd tell her. I told her I'd found her a new place. She was ecstatic, and shocked. She had no idea I had been looking, and was shocked that I'd been visiting places for several weeks.
The more I told her about the place, the more excited she became. She wants to see it now. She said we needed to go out to eat to celebrate. So we went out to eat. I suspect that at some the fear and doubts will kick in, but for now, I'll enjoy her excitement. Her reaction reassured me that this is the right thing to do.

Yay from me as well. I think that she's as hypervigilant as all RAD kids are and she knew that something was happening, she just didn't know what it was. Not reading your emails just reading your mind. Aren't they amazing!

They are amazing, and I'm glad others are sharing my joy.
