The Triumph of the Morning!

We had another big moment this morning during therapy:

I explained that I couldn't fit into the skirt... but she wasn't convinced and obviously wasn't happy with the answer. Her therapist handed her a piece of paper and crayon to distract her from the skirt and she quickly sat down and drew picture #2...

A frown, complete with eyes, nose, ears and a mouth!  I could hardly believe my eyes!


  1. That's wonderful! I love seeing these fantastic updates about Mae's progress. As a question - please forgive me if you feel it is too nosy - but what are the long term goals for Mae? I know that you treasure her as the unique little girl she is and that you have no desire to 'cure' her, but do her therapists anticipate her having any degree of self sufficiency in the future or is it too soon to tell?

  2. I think at this point it's hard to tell exactly how she'll do... but I do know that she's so independent already (about things like changing her own outfit and even little things like grabbing wipe now and cleaning up something that's spilled) that nothing would surprise me!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
