Progress! After a meeting with the Pope's TVI and the supervisor of the Southern Regional office of the CBVI, we have been put on the list to receive a Perkins Smart Brailler! I am perhaps the most excited about this development. As parents, we work so hard to get the tools our children need to be successful.
Perkins is sold out of the Smart Brailler, so we're going to have to wait until they are back in stock. Then we'll have to wait until the CBVI purchases some more units. Then we'll have to wait again until our name comes up on the list. Then training... but I'm hoping to have it for the Pope by the time he starts Kindergarten this fall. It seems like a lot of waiting, but it'll be worth it. At least we're on the list now... from "no" to "yes"... We'll take what we can get!
