Verity resumed therapy today after a two-month break.
We got to see our beloved Miss Marcia! She has been a tremendous help and encouragement to me with Verity’s past feeding issues and current fine motor skill development.
Strength is built from the inside out. Fine motor skills are dependent on the core strength. Refined hand skills are dependent on core and arm strength. So Miss Marcia has a lot of expertise in the area of physical therapy, as well as being a feeding specialist and occupational therapist. She is an unusually gifted and compassionate therapist, and we love her!
We had missed her over the past two months, but Verity took to her again quickly.
Katie took to her, too, after sizing her up during Verity’s allotted hour.
At the end, while Miss Marcia wrote up her notes about Verity, Katie rolled toward her and giggled.
Miss Marcia asked us if we plan to start Katie’s therapy soon. I explained that due to various considerations, we had decided to pursue private therapy rather than registering her with the special education department of our local public school district. And that I needed to make phone calls to area therapists to collect more information.
She didn’t get the whole sentence out before she choked up.
“I would like to offer you my services for Katie at no cost.”
Something had happened to my voice, too, when I tried to answer her.
Praise JEHOVAH OUR PROVIDER!!!!!!
