This is probably one of the happiest and proudest moments I've had with Elise! It's so hard to explain how much these moments mean to me. They are precious. After Elise did the whole process by herself I called my mom because I was so excited.
At the beginning of March, Ez and I had a special fast for Elise. We fasted that she would make improvements and learn quicker.
I can testify that without a doubt that our sincere, heartfelt prayers and fast have been answered.
Looking back it started on March 3rd, the day after we fasted. Since that day I feel like I can report progress after progress she has made. It's amazing. She is starting to form a point, she goes on this slide all the time now, and she is making more vocalizations and all the other things I've posted.
I am humbled and grateful for the Lord's kindness and mercy. I also feel like I can "second" what Elder Richard G. Scott has said about learning from the Spirit. By me being aware and writing on this blog, I am able to see our prayers being answered right in front of my eyes. If I hadn't done that I may have missed seeing God's hand in it.
“Write down in a secure place the important things you learn from the Spirit. You will find that as you write down precious impressions, often more will come. Also, the knowledge you gain will be available throughout your life. Always, day or night, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, seek to recognize and respond to the direction of the Spirit.” -Elder Richard G. Scott
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
