„Hallelujah“ from Antonia from Voerde. We now have the green light to visit you again in 2014. We are all looking forward to it.
A lot has happened with us. Antonia is continuing to develop and surprises us with things that we didn’t think possible. Her vocabulary is growing and growing and she is partially able to request her needs.
Another thing is that she has never watched TV up until now (I would have never believed I would wish for a child that sits in front of the TV every now and then), and since a week ago wants to watch the movie of us that you made every day. The best part is that she comments everything with „Frosi, Fiffi, coughing („do you hear the rainworms cough“), brother“ etc. It is also getting clearer that she is developing into a „bitching puberty girl“, which is seen from all sides as a great development step but my opinion is that she could have skipped that. It is also great the Leon – even though he then already is 17 – wants to come again too. I believe that this cannot be taken for granted at that age. Tanja will also come with us again. She is still working with Antonia and we have become really good friends. It’s really amazing that since half a year ago Antonia no longer calls her „Hatschi“ but actually „Tanni“ or „Tanja“.
It would be great if Antonia could have Barbara as therapeut again because she was amazing in our opinion.
Best wishes and see you soon
Hilde and family
