I Am A Child Of God
Four years ago, she felt no connection to society... no value... no pleasure... no pain... no worth. Four years ago she lay on the floor and screamed... for 30 minutes. 4 years ago, she threw glasses across the marble floor. 4 years ago she could not eat ice cream.
4 years of loving her. 4 years of telling her she is a good girl... every night. 4 years of helping her accept human contact, then a cuddle, then a hug, and then a kiss. 4 years of showing her that we truly do love her for who she is and what she brings to our family... that she is important to us... that we value her thoughts and ideas... that we will be there... no matter what. 4 years of showing her that she is truly a Child of God...
"In all my years of teaching, I have never seen so much improvement in behavior as I have seen in her over the last 2 years." "She has been the star of the class room twice this week. We have had to watch for reasons to let other children be the star."
Emma is a child of God. And so are you.
P.S. And so is Brady.
