We're Getting There

It's been almost a month since Nina started with her speech therapy classes, and I must say that she's doing a pretty good job.  Initially, she used up the 1-hour session crying over the fact that she wasn't allowed to either nurse from me or because neither I nor her Yaya would carry her.  This afternoon, she barely even noticed that we had left her alone in the room with her teacher.  That's progress as far as I am concerned.

She's also begun to say a lot more words.  The teacher proudly told me this afternoon that the words "apple" and "cup" were very clear when she was asked to repeat them.  The other week, we were so proud of her because when she saw us open the cake box from my sister's birthday, she said "Wow, cake!" and it was VERY clear!  That to us, is yet another answered prayer, another miracle.

Of course, it's still a long way to go for us and I know it wont be easy.  But with the determination that this little girl has, I know that we will get there, slowly but surely.
