Luca & Matteo graduated from early intervention today. Since the day we brought them home from the NICU, we've had PT, OT, and/or Speech therapy in our home each week. We've seen and met some of the very best in their field. I don't even want to imagine our life without their help over the years. Both Luca & Matteo had bilateral brain bleeds as infants. It has affected them each in different ways. We didn't know what delays they might have developmentally. Only time would tell. From being able to touch their hands at mid-line, to sensory processing, getting over oral aversions, anger management, feeling comfortable in their own skin, from high tone to low tone, and receptive language skills, we have seen them fight through their challenges and grow beyond my wildest imagination. They might not be at the same stage as other children their age starting school this year, but thankfully they will continue to receive accommodations in their special needs preschool program. We look forward to the future and we know it is oh so bright for these two stars. Happy graduation day my angels! I'm so proud of you.
