Therapy

As I mentioned in this post, God has provided for Isabel to receive therapy twice a week at the Iquique branch of the Teleton. She started her sessions while I was in Haiti, so yesterday was my first opportunity to meet Tia Paulina and to observe their activities together.

Isabel has received some form of physical and/or occupational therapy since she was around two years old, so much of it is not new to us. Even so, it is always interesting to watch and I am constantly impressed by Isabel's good attitude and willing participation in what she is asked to do. When she first started as a toddler, her therapists used to express amazement that she could focus and participate so well at such a young age. She has continued to amaze all of us in the years since then. We are thankful for our precious girl, beautiful both inside and out!
