She learned over the years that with patience, consistency, encouragement and dedication anything is possible!  The days and nights I prayed that my son would talk and live a normal life that I too would be able to experience the milestones most parents do. She believes there is no greater feeling as a parent to know there is a team of people that want the best for your child.
