Most parents dread finding a note from the school sent home with their children, but these two lucky parents felt nothing but joy. When their children came home, Jorge and Leonor found a special note written by the bus driver. While the majority of students were engaged in childish mischief, their children were busy showing compassion for a disabled classmate.
Dear Jorge and Leonor,
I am compelled to write to tell you how beautiful your children are, inside and out!
This can only come from the home, your patience and guidance, the examples that you set and teach.
I have a child on my bus named Jackson.
Both of your children have shown him much compassion and support.
Every day your children ask if they can sit with Jackson.
Some days Jackson is a little sad getting on the bus but as soon as he sees Annaliese and Jorge he smiles.
Jackson has difficulties walking and it takes a bit for him to get to his seat.
Today Annaliese looked out from around her seat and said, “come on Jackson, you can do it” and when we arrived at school Jorge took it upon himself to carry out his backpack!
I know you know how wonderful your children are, but I wanted you to know that it shows!
