Quick post today. Cooper had his evaluation with the psychologist yesterday. Thank God that is over. We meet next Wednesday to get her feedback. According to her and his daycare provider the visit went well. Cooper made perfect eye contact the whole time, greeted parents and greeted the psychologist. Oh, and followed directions. But, what I didn’t hear is how he interacted with the other kids. And I was too scared to ask through email. So, Wednesday it is. Will this wait every end???
I wanted to share a little excerpt I found on a speech delay/apraxia website. Here is a good shot of hope for all the moms and dads that need it. Like me!
“I feel compelled to share my son’s progress especially to those of you who are wondering if their child will ever talk. I have been that mom for the past 2.5 years. My son, Mason, is going to be 4 on March 28th. His first full consistent word was “present” which he screamed out Christmas morning! We were shocked of course and not expecting to hear it ever again. He hasn’t stopped talking since!
Yes, it’s hard to understand but I hear it more clear everyday and it’s only been a little over a month. I’m sharing because this is something I wanted to hear when I was waiting. Mom’s it will come when you least expect it. Keep having faith in the beautiful children that were given to you.”
Now if that isn’t hopeful I don’t know what is.
