What a Lovely Beginning....

to 2010...

This afternoon Emily was invited to a birthday party of a little girl at her pre-school


and what a lovely time we had.

It was so nice to watch Emily having a good time with her friends {obviously I was close by helping her to access all the equipment} but Emily was the one "in charge" and doing exactly what "she" wanted to do ~ and do you know she surprised me, she was even managing 3 or 4 jumps at a time on the bouncy castle before callapsing in a heap, of which she found funny and even funnier when it was Mummy who fell in a heap!!!

It was also lovely and very touching to see just how the "mainstream" {I hate to say normal} children really do interact with Emily, obviously the communication problem does make things difficult, but it was so apparent that these children do like and care about Emily.

For that I am truely grateful...

Not only grateful for the friendship of all of these lovely natured children that they show towards Emily but also very grateful to the parents of these children - to the parents I would like to say THANK YOU.

Thank you for your friendships, thank you for your encouragement, thank you for showing an interest and thank you for encouraging your children to not see Emily as different or someone to fear.
