I woke before the sun

I woke up this morning before the sun rose, before the busyness of the day began, even before the birds began to chirp. I rustled around the house preparing kids lunches, packing up the car, organizing for what lied ahead. You see, yesterday was the beginning of something new, and today was just a continuation of that. I was preparing for a pretty tough day. A day filled with much crying, exhaustion and amazing growth. All of my preparations is for my beautiful Faith.

I started Faith on a 6 hour a day, 5 days a week, for 3 weeks, intensive therapy program. She is doing Neuro suit therapy and Tomatis (listening therapy). She hates to be touched and manipulated, and these therapies consist of all that. She cries for hours on end and as much as I want to swept her up in my arms and comfort her, I know that what she is going through is doing her body and mind wonders.

Meanwhile, on the home front, Jayme is waking with the kids in the morning and taking them to school. Our amazing nanny is taking the afternoon shift and helping out until the evening. I arrive home around 3:00 and am pretty wiped out.

I ask that you pray for Faith on her new journey and send prayers to my husband and children as these therapies will take time away from them.

Pictures to follow in a few days

Suzanne, I will be praying for you that the new therapies will go well and that you will see improvements in Faith. I know it must seem overwhelming at times, but know that others are lifting you up in prayer. Hoping your day goes well!
