Leo has always been different than other kids. Even at a young age, we just knew there was something about him. He was more intense, more spirited, more energetic, more demanding, just more than any of his peers. His thought process has always been unique. He was born a creator. He has an insatiable curiosity for the world. He reads books like he breathes air, as if he needs them for survival.
Knowing that my son was gifted made me brave. It gave me courage to make choices that felt extreme and yet entirely appropriate. These choices set my son free.
School days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence.
~ H.L. Mencken
