Hope you all had a fun & love filled Valentine’s Day!
Hubby and I enjoyed a great date night without the kiddos…I think I can count one one hand how many times that has happened in the last couple years *we’re trying to do better*
Our boys are coming up on their 3rd birthday this March. Each year seems to fly by as I’m sure anyone with kids can relate to. It’s funny how as adults the days, months and years go by quickly yet as a kid I can remember how long it took to get to my next bday or an event I was looking forward to. I guess perspective changes as we get older.
So our boys will be finishing up the therapy they have been receiving in home as soon as they reach the age of 3. The therapy they have been receiving as been more focused on teaching them basic everyday skills while at the same time helping them with their receptive language and expressive language. The boys have come a long way since they began this therapy but they still need continued help.
I am not really sad about their lack of development in various areas but I am hopeful that with continued specialized teaching that they will get on track for their age. The one BIG area though that I am anxious to see breakthrough is in their verbal language. They have a few words they know but they seem to come and go. It’s hard for my husband especially to see them not develop in this area.
I on the other hand am trying to stay positive, hopeful and optimistic. It’s not always easy and some days I may cry to God about my feelings. The wonderful thing about God is that I know that He loves my boys even MORE than I could possibly love them and He reminds me daily that He is the God of ALL HOPE. The verse found in Jermeiah 29:11 states that God’s plans for us are for a HOPE and a FUTURE.
I take comfort in that verse knowing that my little boys are in God’s hands. I wish I could change things on my own timetable but I (we) are learning to trust even when we don’t see God’s hand moving they way we want.
Could you take a minute to pray for us, for our boys? I really believe in the power of prayer and know God honors those requests we bring to Him.
I’ll keep you update on some evaluations they boys will be having within the next month. Thanks for listening!
