I am feeling extremely blessed, grateful and happy! Elise's checks came in the mail today. It's been a long, time-consuming process to get to this point. There were some complications so them being here is a tender mercy.
With one of the checks I purchased an iPad and app. She will be using the iPad to communicate with us until she learns to talk. The app is called Proloquo2go. One of the little boys at therapy uses it and I was blown away with the progress he's made and the bridge it made for him and others to communicate.
Elise has been using the therapist's iPad in all of her sessions but now we have one that's just hers so we can use it everywhere. I can't wait to get started and be able to "talk" to each other! That's been one of the biggest challenges I've been facing with her and this iPad means so much to me. I LOVE technology. It is a blessing for sure.
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!
