Something fantastic happened in our house yesterday. As you may or may not know I have two autistic children.
Our autistic daughter, is three years old and has a very limited vocabulary. Every time she shows us that she understands something or says a new word we celebrate, it may sound like something small but to us each small step is a big one towards her leading a normal life – so we get excited.
Can you imagine my excitement yesterday when watching an interview of Susan Boyle on Oprah our little girl said: Look it’s Susan Boyle, Susan Boyle is singing a song” – I stared at her mouth agog, I was stunned. Look at the size of that sentence!
I couldn’t believe it. At hearing that sentence I cried, I was so happy. I didn’t even know she knew who Susan Boyle was, let alone paid attention to any music. We were so surprised, thankful and excited! I was so amazed by Georgie’s little feat that I tracked down Susan Boyles site and send her a message about it, something I ordinarily wouldn’t do, but I was just that happy.
