Her mind is so amazing! She is communicating up a storm, reading more than 50 words, is identifying numbers for us all the way up to 100, and today she asked to get a drink from the water fountain when her class did! Amazing given the millions of sensory challenges she faces, the fears she lives with, and the enormous amount of anxiety that clouds her brain. We have even noticed on you tube that she has seemed to memorize the complex "avenues" that lead to her favorite videos. She can find them again because she has memorized the videos and paths that lead to each one. It is truly amazing! She is so complex and so incredible! We are beyond blessed to have her as our daughter. This special, special girl has taught us so very much and, somehow, she manages to bring us all to tears as we watch her sitting in her adorable goat costume with her kindergarten class. What an incredible and amazing little blessing this 6 year old is to us! As we prepare to celebrate her fourth gotcha day at the end of this week, I am in awe of how far God has brought her and just how far He has brought us because of her.
