I'm an easier crier - a trait that I got from my mom but not one that I have fully embraced yet!
Yesterday, Amber brought home this little 6 page book, with 3 words on each page. Each page started with "See the..." Then there would be a picture of a horse or a pig or something, and then the corresponding word underneath it.
She has been in kindergarten for not 3 weeks now, and read her first book....as simple as it may seem. When you have a kid with a hearing loss, reading is such an important foundation, and one I knew she was capable of, but had no idea how to teach her, even though I tried.
I cried, and embraced my daughter. It was incredible!
