I mentioned earlier that I have good news about my son. It’s great news. Wonderful news! It’s something wonderful and life-changing.
My seven year old nonverbal son now says “Mama.”
He looks me dead in the eyes and says “Mama”. He has actually been saying it for a couple of weeks, but now it’s rock-solid and consistent. He also says a variant of “Daddy”, “out”, “apple” and now we’re working on “love you”. He hums identifiable songs. He’s experimenting with his voice. I can’t even explain the joy that this gives me.
I just wanted to share that. 🙂
