She's not one of those radical, screaming children at the grocery store. She simply lacks the full ability to communicate. Fortunately, through the help of three types of therapy she's gaining understanding and the tools needed to finally communicate with us in ways we can understand.

I'm happily married now to an incredible man who meshes really well with the type of person I am. He loves me for me and loves my daughter in ways I didn't know were possible for anyone but myself.
