Part of our Home...

Today was the day. 

 All of Gavin's therapists (minus Miss Stephanie who had a last minute babysitting emergency) gathered in our playroom so I could somehow, someway convey our gratitude...and our love for them.

When I made the decision not to send Gavin to school when he turned three, I hoped that it was the right one. I just wanted to give him a little more time to get stronger physically. And, as an added bonus, it would give ME time to get stronger emotionally. My life has been wrapped up in Gavin - I wasn't ready to let go.

One by one these women came into our home. One by one I watched my son fall in love with them. And one by one, they became a part of our lives...our hearts...and our home.

Gavin has changed a lot over the last two years. The progress he has made has been wonderful. Not every family gets lucky with therapists - they have to try and try and try again until they find just the right fit. Not us. Five therapists were dropped straight from Heaven just for Gavin. These five women will always be a part of our lives.

So today, we gathered. There was a giant cookie...a small present...and then a homemade gift. Talking about the last two years is one thing. Talking about the progress Gavin has made as he makes it is another. But seeing it all together in one short movie? That's something else. Something that requires a lot of tissues. Especially when you reach the end. You've been warned.

I give you...



  1. Beautiful. You were one lucky family to have such wonderful women doing great things with your superhero (and his faithful sidekick). Blessings to all of you and to them!
