Aug. 2012- On Emily's 2nd visit to H3, I actually heard her talking to her mother as she got out of the car. She seemed so excited to be at H3 again. She did not say a word or show any expression on her 1st visit. Ya see, Emily didn't talk much at school. I had known Emily in Kindergarten in 2010 & 2011. By 1st grade (2012), she was diagnosed with a learning disability. She rarely spoke, and when she did, you could hardly understand her.
On this 2nd visit to H3, she showed expressions and emotions I had never seen in her before! As we were leading a horse to the round pen, Emily spoke! She said, "Its a beautiful day!" And it was!!! Her words were clear as the bells from heaven!! Her words touched my heart more than I can express. To this day, when me or my son, Johnny, say or think that it is a beautiful day, we always mention Emily!
