Nathan is really verbalizing his longing for his Son-Rise volunteers, now that everyone is on Christmas holidays. Last night he asked, “Do you like Tita Aldhel?” I paused and waited to see if he wanted me to answer his question but he continued and answered, “I like Tita Aldhel.” 🙂
He knows the best times are Son-Rise sessions where he has his volunteers all for himself!
In the photo are Nathan and Aldhel about a year ago. Aldhel has been volunteering for Nathan for 2 years now and have watched him grow from being so withdrawn, aggressive at times, to now being more verbal, spontaneous and happily persistent about his wants and needs. We have a long way to go. Thank you Aldhel for holding hands with us through the ups and downs of our journey!!!
