Today, there’s hope. Today, she’s part of a community. They engage and connect with her. She used to have frequent meltdowns because she didn’t know how to communicate. Now she can communicate with us without melting down by using problem-solving skills. She’s writing, she’s verbalizing, she comes home and tells us stories.
She has friends, which she didn’t before.
I never thought it was possible for her to do what she’s doing because I was always told she’d never do things and that my expectations were too high. I knew I could get her there, but not by myself. When we walked through the door, we knew that JPII was for her.
Every day before was a bad day, but not anymore.
