It's times like these that I wish finances weren't an issue. She is making progress, it's just slow, so I'm just not sure if it's $460 a month worth of progress or if we will even reach our goals in the end, or if we do if it will have been because of this therapy. I'd been having these thoughts and our therapist said to me this week he wasn't sure when Ainsley first showed up (her case looks pretty grim on paper) but that now he knows she "was meant to be here." There are moms at the stables who's "children" are in their 30's and they've been coming for 25 years because they believe it's that beneficial. I'm reserving my opinion for a bit. Now that my Steve is home we are stepping up our home therapy regimes a notch. With a kid like Ainsley the real work has to happen at home. An hour (or 4) in therapy each week just isn't going to get you where you want to go.
Progress or not. Walking or not. Eating or not. Speaking or not. I'm just thankful that she is so happy. She puts a smile on my face many times every single day. Even the tough days. I love her more than words could possibly describe.
