Why we are here.

I realize this picture doesn't look like much to most. It is just sweet little hands holding a juice box. But, this one everyday photo explains why we've driven our family 13 hours from home to stay in New Jersey for a month. 

This photo is pride. 
This photo is progress. 
This photo is faith. 
This photo is hope.

 In the past Jonah would have only drink his juice with his left hand. His right hand would have stayed at his side. Dr.s call it right side neglect. On Friday his therapist sent us this picture of him. They said they looked up and he was drinking his juice with his right hand without any help. 

Then today I looked down and he was playing with his juice box. Holding it with two hands without any prompting, help or reinforcement. 

It's bigger than a juice box. 
This photo is hope. 

Love you! 


  1. Amen, hope is floating up to the top! We are so pleased with his progress. Love to each of you. You warm our heart. Love, Mom

  2. That's amazing! I'm so glad to see that - I know that's what you wanted more than anything! :)
