A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

Report Card Time

We had Julia's six month assessment with the early intervention program recently.  Her therapist and case coordinator were present.  It was the first time the case coordinator had seen Julia since our initial enrollment when she was four months old.  We know how much Julia has changed in that time, but she was blown away!  You have met several of the goals we set back in April!  We still have a few more months on their schedule for the other initial goals.  In April I had no idea what to expect.  The goals set seemed like a lifetime away.  Julia had not even smiled at that point! Now here we are and she is making definite and measurable gains! The therapist and case coordinator both think she would make even quicker gains with a few more pounds, and I hope we can work on that, too.  I am so very proud of my sweet Julia!

The therapist brought a chair and oversized tray for Julia to try to work on sitting and playing.  For so long we were told she was too small for any of the chairs, but she definitely is not too small! Although she was not too sure of the chair at first, I hope she can get used to it and enjoy more play time.  Many thanks to Julia's therapist for bringing this to us!
