Today allowed me to put myself in the shoes of parents whose children have special needs, whether Down Syndrome, Autism, or any number of special needs.
I can only imagine what it is like to work so hard encouraging your own child to meet a goal and for it to finally happen.
While I am not yet a parent myself, I live for the moments of "firsts" with the children I work with everyday. It is the most amazing feeling to see a child meet a milestone after weeks, months, or even years of work.
Check out this video that I recorded of a child I see weekly taking some of her first steps! I was beyond excited, and she was so proud of herself when she finally took off!!
