This is a pretty exciting week for me. I have waited for years for this time to come! A very special young lady in our care who has had her share of hardships is experiencing many “firsts” as we travel together to South Africa to see if she is a candidate for a Cochlear Implant. She has been deaf since she was around 3 years old.
Starting today there are lots of firsts: First plane, first elevator, first SA burger, first huge City, first view of so many lights and freeways like spagetti, first parking garage large Mall and our first trip together! This is truly awesome! She has been with us at LBOM for over 10 years now. We have seen her grow up from a child who lived in the hospital for 9 years before being released into foster care with us into a beautiful young lady filled with gifts! She may be hearing impaired, but man can she dance! She can feel the beat in her bones and dance with the best of them!
This week might produce the desired results with the doctors, but if it didn’t, this whole experience would have been worth it! I appreciate your cheering us on!
