It was the end of his weekly session with his speech therapist. He was smiling and slipping on his shoes having had a great time at the session.

Then, it happened.

He looked at me and then at Carmen, the therapist, and said; "Haaabis"; telling us that the session was over. Without being prompted, without us having to signal. A nice, clear "Habis" followed by a huge smile on his face.

Surely, not many will understand how great this is for us. That my son, nearing the age of 5 could actually say one simple no brainer word on his own. But for us, who went through years of therapy and so many physical and emotional hurdles - this is HUGE!

He made me so proud today, that nothing shall spoil my mood - not even the long evening planned for hard negotiations with my Clients and that I just had to update this blog to share it with the world!!

There is hope afterall. My little one has so much to teach me and I guess he's telling me to keep marching on, keep giving love without limits and have faith in him. Who knows what the future will bring, yes?

Anedra, I can sense the pride, the happiness, the hope, the faith in your short entry ..... that it almost immediately made you blog about it after the "long holiday from blogging" speaks volumes too :-)

Glad to know you're all making good progress.
