Elise's therapist did some testing today to see her progress. I became more and more disheartened as the questions continued. No she still wasn't following commands, no she still wasn't pointing to pictures; on and on it continued.
By the end of the session I was done.
Luckily Ez was home sick so I could cry to him. I was so disappointed and frustrated that after HOURS and HOURS and HOURS of therapy, those were the answers I gave.
Thankfully Ez knew just what I needed to hear. He told me, "Look at where she would be without it."
Those words pierced my heart. I knew they were true. I knew that even though Elise has made little progress, it is progress nonetheless. I know that this life she has, is and will be slow and a lot of hard work-for both of us. But I know without therapy she nor I wouldn't have the hope it gives us and hope keeps me going.
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!
