PT Graduation

After almost a year, and one session a week for both babies, Tess and Jujube have graduated from physical therapy!  (Still working with speech and occupational therapy. ) 

This is Miss Diane. She's actually not human. She's an angel... sent from Heaven. She is was the babes' physical therapist. She was the first therapist of many that came through our door. She's seen T&J progress the most, seen what they were like in the beginning, and I think that's why it's so hard for me to imagine her not coming around anymore.

When Miss Diane first came to help us, Jujube had had his second surgery, had completed his castings, and was wearing his braces 23 1/2 hours a day and crawled all over.

And when Diane first started, Tess was such a different child. Miss Diane's therapy taught Tess to walk and run, but more importantly gave Tess special time to play with us, and be with us, and receive attention, and mostly learn to be a loved child in our world.

T&J love Miss Diane! Me too! When the door bell rings in our home, they both rush the front door looking for their "friend" with all her toys and time just for them to play and play and play. With Miss Diane's help, T&J are now running all over and jumping and climbing up and down steps with ease. They climb up all sorts of things, including things they shouldn't when I'm not looking. Jujube has a big fat goose egg in the center of his forehead to prove it.

Thank you so much Miss Diane! We miss your big buckets and collection of wind up creatures. We miss your duct-wrapped book stairs, knocking over the stacked up buckets, and your awesome silly faces.  Thank you so so much for getting down on the floor and making this time more about fun and play than anything else. Thank you for looking T&J dead in the eye and making them feel special like the world is at their feet and like they can do anything they want. Cause they can, you know! Thank you so very much. We'll miss you!


  1. Jude and Tessa are just too adorable and Tessa looks so secure and loved - you have done wonders with her. I am so happy to hear that they are doing so well with their therapies.

  2. She sounds like an "everyday angel" as I call them. They walk into our lives for a reason, and when they leave we miss them, but know God has plans for them with another and their work is complete with us. Jude and Tess look like they love her!
