Kristi’s Last Day

August 1, 2013

Today was our ABA therapists last day. I can’t believe its been a year and our scholarship is done.  Rett has come so far and picked up so many skills.  We had a few therapists come and go through the year but Kristi stuck with us through the entire year.   She is always patient, always happy, always upbeat.  She communicated wonderfully on what we could do to help Rett at home and things he should work on.  She played Candy Land with him everyday for awhile.  And play doh.  Who does that?

 

I’ve been dreading this final day for awhile.  I knew not only what it meant for Rett but for myself as the emotional toll sets in.  On top of our last day being today I also got the e mail that the scholarship for 2013 was awarded to another child.   Even though I really doubted Rett would get another year, I hadn’t completely given up hope.  I know Rett is going to do ok and that speech therapy continues to benefit him so much.  But its still scary. Especially when I see how far he’s come with his ABA therapy.  I only hope that this child and family are as blessed as ours. That they see great gains and that they too get a big dose of hope.   With hope, all things are possible.
