There is a great quote that really brings clarity on what I experienced with Boo this past Everglades Challenge.
Boo's insights and vision, her ability to adapt overcome and persevere, is unique to her and her alone. How fortunate as a father to witness the growth the development of such a young person. Our future as a society is our youth. We should respect and honor this transformation. Poetry in motion.
You are really individual beings, with very special talents, and it would be nice if teachers had the time, or parents had the awareness or skill, to see the children as the very individual, very special beings that they are. So that rather than trying to drum them into one category, they are, instead, appreciating the special insight that each child brings to the sea of diversity and contrast which is the stuff that creation comes from. - Abraham and Hicks
