"Today, I'm printing out invitations to D's first ever birthday party with friends. I am tingling all over and giddy and hopeful and all sorts of feelings that autism doesn't usually let me have. I asked D if he wanted a party...he responded immediately and emphatically, "Yes!" and listed items that he wanted to eat.
When I asked him who we should invite, he listed several kids in his class along with the guidance staff member who interacts with the students. Fingers crossed that some of these kids are available to celebrate this amazing boy. This year, we truly have so much to celebrate!
Tears! Progress every day! Thanks, Dr. Elice!"
