A year into our Fragile X diagnosis, I'm learning to find the beauties in this heartbreak. For every path the diagnosis closed off two more have opened. This diagnosis has brought a new level of understanding and compassion to myself and my whole family.
We are a month into our school venture and Dalton is doing wonderful. He is having to sit in a booster seat during circle time because he doesn't quite understand that he has to "sit still even if he doesn't want to." But, he doesn't mind the chair and they give him opportunities to try to not sit in it. I can already tell his vocabulary and articulation has improved. Plus, he loves school and can't wait to get to go.
We are working on an auction with WDIC to raise funds for his service dog. Hopefully by the end of summer we will have raised all the money. We also have a website for donations now www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/brittanymarshal
Psalm 147:3-5 NKJV
He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
