Amazing Story

I have been (slowly) recovering from surgery since Monday. I went in for a hysterectomy and came out with that plus an appendectomy! Two for one! Lucky me :)

Needless to say, I have been resting quite a bit and seeing much more tv than I was ever free to see. Boog's amazing Da-da took this week off to take care of us and he has done such a great job. I've also had some very sweet friends and family do various things from stopping by the hospital to see me, to leaving a ton of delicious food on my porch! It's great to be in the south :)

Last night we were casually watching the news, and Da-da said "Hey, did you hear that? An upcoming story is about Autism". So we continued to watch the news to see the story. Little did we know how powerful that story would be!

The piece was on this beautiful little boy who was non-verbal. This child actually spoke a sentence to his mommy all because he loved seeing his favorite truck come down the street! Hearing this mom explain the joy of hearing her son speak made me cry tears of joy. Joy and hopefulness that the same may happen to us. 

It's not very often a story on the news leaves you hopeful and happy, so please check this one out!
