I see a child look at her.
He is curious with her cooing sounds and screams of excitement.
He looks at her dog and wants to pet it but is hesitant because he sees the red harness with the bold print ‘DO NOT PET’.
He stares at her face and I’m assuming he’s looking at the drool dripping onto her bib.
He waves at her and she responds by lifting her right arm up and down twice, as practiced thousands of times in therapy. (Thank you IBI for the waving-hand program.)
He then says, “Want to play with me?”
My shoulders relax 2 inches from my ears. My heart melts.
