Amor (diagnosis: Global Developmental Delay) got younger Brother, Ian’s, avengers book and started asking questions about some of her favourite heroes. Ian was happy to answer as they flipped through the pages.
Since they both enjoy adventure, I was soon listening to their amazing conversation which was so neurotypical.
This is such a big celebration for me. When Amor was younger, she would all of a sudden stop talking or simply walk away if her peers started asking her questions. My friend’s daughter would come to me puzzled asking, “Why isn’t Amor answering me?” I didn’t realise that it was because responding to their questions at the rate they required, was too difficult for Amor. Playing alone or walking away was the easier option for Amor.
I am so blessed by the comfort that these incidents bring me. Praise God for healing!
