today i had an early start....i am NOT a morning person but today it did not matter that my alarm went off at 530am...i was awake anyway :) i spent a lot of the night awake thinking and praying about kinley's day today. i know i should not doubt that God would work today out perfectly, but i had some moments of worry. would we "click" with our new therapist, would kinley be responsive to therapy, would it work...would kinley talk..... but as i drove to therapy this morning i felt excited and peaceful.
we waited in the waiting room and mary lou our therapist walked out i just knew it was okay. during the next hour we had a GREAT time. mary lou was awesome! she was kind, authentic, FULL of knowledge and a PERFECT FIT :)
i left with A LOT of information and "homework" for kinley and our family...and it was WONDERFUL! as a mother it felt amazing to be empowered with things i can "DO" to help kinley. i am excited about the tools and plan mary lou explained. she warned me that therapy will kind of go in 12 sessions. she told me that i might not see a lot of progress in the first 12 weeks, but she said she is confident that by the end of the 2nd 12 weeks that i will start to really notice some change. i know 6 months seems like a long time to see some little changes, but to hear that we will see something is encouraging. i had a "moment" today with mary lou and with tears had a mommy moment asking if she thought kinley would ever talk. i LOVED her response...she looked at me and just smiled and said "brooke, kinley is already talking...listen to her...we just don't understand what she is saying :) " this statement is so true! kinley may not be able to articulate her words well but boy that sweet girl of ours can communicate in a way all of her own :) kinley has the best personality and it shines !! i love this girl!
it has been another amazing day showing us once again God has the perfect plan for us!
thank you all for your prayers and support!!! i can't wait to video kinley post some videos of her progress!!
