Guess who doesn't need this any more!
Nearly a year ago, many of you old-timers around here responded to my pleading parent post by joining me and my family in wishing Todd well on the Medical College Admissions Test. In the angst-y months that followed, you supported one very stressed-out mom through a number of med school interviews across the country and encouraged me when Todd ended up on a couple of waitlists without any firm acceptances.
Lo and behold, your prayers, positive thoughts, and tightly crossed fingers must have done some good...because Todd was officially accepted yesterday by the University of California Irvine School of Medicine! That's right, my friends (and I DO mean friends), he will start August 5th as a first-year med student, and everyone who loves him is over the moon about it. In fact, Todd is flying pretty high himself. We simply could not be happier.
There's something quite wonderful about watching a child's dream begin to come true, no matter how old he gets.
