Last week, Cliff's PT who has been with us for 3 1/2 years had her last visit with Cliff. Ann came into our lives when Cliff was a tiny little preemie who was showing signs of developmental delays. She was right there with us when we received the diagnosis of CP, she has been there to listen to me as a mother of a special needs child.
She has seen our struggles to cope with Cliff's disability.
She celebrated with us when Cliff lifted his head for the first time, open his hand to grab toy, rolled over, sat up, stood in his walker for the first time, took his first steps.
The next day after we got home from St. Louis, Ann was at our house, teaching Cliff how to use his "new legs."
Ann has been there for us through tears, laughter, anger, frustration, triumphs.
She has talked us through the tough times and celebrated with us through the good times.
Ann is a member of our family.
There are no words that can ever convey how thankful we are for her hard work and determination for Cliff.
If it weren't for Ann coming to our home at least twice a week (and everyday after the surgery) for the last 3 1/2 years, Cliff would not be where he is today.
THANK YOU ANN!
Cliff begins the Conductive Education School Year Session 6 hours a day, 5 days a week at The Therapy Place in the morning.
We are so excited for this new chapter in Cliff's life.
The Boy is growing up and is ready to be more independent, which means he is ready to begin receiving some of his therapies outside of the home (mainly without me hovering over him...)!
Now we want to show you Cliff's latest trick:
Cliff now pulls to stand at the baby gate ALL BY HIMSELF!!!
The look of accomplishment on his sweet little face is priceless.
This kid is AMAZING!
It is so wonderful witnessing God perform miracles right before our eyes.
Please put Cliff is your prayers as he begins this intense program.
Thank you so much for your support!
It means so much to all of us!
"He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted."
