Precious Moments

Beth went out to check the mail today and the front yard was bathed in sunshine. She got about half way through the yard and stopped. (I was watching from the dining room window.) She then spread out her arms, looked up to the sky and slowly spun around a few times. Just soakin' in the sun!!

On Sunday we had all 5 kids in our classroom. We started Special Connections in February 2010 and that has only happened one other time that I remember. We all went out to the playground to enjoy the warm sunny weather. On our way back to the classroom, each teacher latched on to a child and 'H' grabbed Beth's hand. (H is 17 and has a seizure disorder. She doesn't speak but says so much with her eyes!) Now Beth will only hold your hand when she's in the mood to hold your hand so the fact that she let H hold her hand was a miracle in itself. But then... Beth took H's hand and wrapped it around her arm and together they walked into the classroom!

It's moments like these that remind me why I chose this journey!

Hi
My name is Jenna and I came across your site. Beth is an amazing, smilen and beautiful person. She is an inspirational hero. What an amazing story that is! I have a special story like that too. I have a rare life threatening disease, and developmental delays. I went to a wedding last week and my dad's friend Paul had his 2 year old son James there. Paul has an older son named Randy by another marriage, Randy has severe autsim, and developmental delays. James never took to anyone before, and his daddy was holding him and James said down daddy, so paul let him down and he came and put his arms around me and gave me a big hug! Then he wanted up and so I lifted him up and danced with him! That was special time for me, and his parents. James is such a really special little guy! I love it when people sign my guestbook. www.miraclechamp.webs.com
