Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.

So Damon and Elena finally did it.
On Thursday's episode of The Vampire Diaries, what started out as a late-night slow dance between the two, turned into a passionate kiss, which then became a hot-and-heavy well, you know. So how did they get there after all this time? Let's back up.
The hour began with a newly single Stefan working his out his frustrations because his ex has feelings for his brother. Elena, meanwhile, knew she had confusing feelings to reconcile and Damon was elated when Elena revealed he was the reason for the breakup. But the two didn't jump each other's bones right away. First, they had to attend to the matter of awakened hunter Jeremy wanting to kill Elena. After confronting her brother only to have him stake her, Elena told Stefan to let go of the idea that Jeremy's mark would lead to a cure. "This is who I am now," Elena said. "The old Elena died when she went off that bridge. Let her go."
With a brother wanting to kill her, Elena packed up and set up shop at the Salvatore house, conveniently leaving her alone with Damon and a glass of whiskey. From there, the two relived their old Miss Mystic Falls dance which lead to a passionate kiss which turned into a hot-and-heavy hookup. But the dalliance didn't come without complications. As Caroline and Stefan drowned their sorrows they suddenly realized Elena must be sired by Damon, hence the innate attraction. Regardless, the two finally got busy.
So was it all you ever imagined and hoped for? And now that it's possible Elena is only attracted to Damon because she's sired by him, does that take away from the enjoyment of the moment? Vote in our poll.
