A to Z Challenge – Day 24 – X



Christmas 1999, Emily is 18 months old and after 5 months of working on her physio exercises, she’s finally sitting independently. 

This picture represents so much!  This was such a huge milestone for all of us. 

With 1 hour of physio therapy per month, we, Jonathan, our babysitter Monique and I did hours of exercises with Emily daily. 


Jon and I had full-time employment but Emily got all the physio, OT, speech, special education, nutrition and everything else she needed at home from us before and after work while our angel (Monique) did as much as she could while babysitting Emily and other kids!

This picture, this milestone, showed us once again that Emily could do more!

  1. I started with Christmas 1999, and was compelled to watch Emily grow.. it was so wonderful to see dedication and hard work within a loving family.. thank you for sharing.

      • I totally get it. Although in our case, they weren’t physical, but more cognitive, social, and daily routine independence things. But whenever one is reached, it hits the heart hard. 😊
