She don't know

that she spoke at Awana's tonight! When we went to pick up the Genius her teacher said she told a new teacher her name! He confirmed that he knew who she was because she said her first name out loud. I was on cloud 5 million and 33. But on the ride home she confirmed that she was doing her name in sign language and did not speak. So we are guessing she said her name and just did not realize it. But since it is the first time in 6 years that she has ever told a stranger her name. I don't really care! I am believing that it has GOT to be a sign that she is getting less anxious and that maybe all this therapy is helping her Selective Mutism! We go to the therapist tomorrow and I can get her take on all this!

That's wonderful! :) She talked and didn't even know it! WOo hoo! It seems to me like that would be the big thing- being able to forget about yourself, and communicate.

Yippeee!

Trinka - That is EXACTLY what I thought! The anxiety may be lessening! I get so tired for 88 miles on the road each week for therapy and this really helped me want to go today. Thanks Stephanie!!!!
