Let's just say our prayers were answered ten fold. The girl can TALK. And talk. And talk. To herself. To anyone in the room. To a wall. To the dog, her dolls, she can and will talk. Now we often say, "Mason-Kate, can you please just be quiet? For a minute?" It truly is a challenge for her! She loves her voice. She sings. She recites poems. Or class lessons. She tells stories. Anything to hear her voice.
So now we pray for Maddox. She continues to improve daily with her speech. She tries. And there are words that she says without any complications. But there are many that need lots of work. No doubt she is understood, the girl can communicate her desires. And she understands everything. Speech is such an intriguing part of life, one that I did not even think twice about the complexity of until my girls entered into our lives. So thankful for the speech therapists that have been there for our girls! What an amazing job and what patience they have!
