My Proudest Moment

Today was Special Needs Sunday at our church, Stonebriar Community Church. Lizzie was asked to sing by herself in front of the whole congregation (2,000+ people)! Words cannot explain wonderful she did and how emotional this was for us. She has come so far. It is truly amazing that she is able to handle all the details that surround getting up in front of the whole church and belting out her song from her heart! We are so thankful for all the support of our family, friends, therapists and teachers that have gotten her this far. They say it takes a village, and it really has with Lizzie.

Best Friends!

Words cannot express how thankful we are for Natalie! Natalie is such a sweet friend to Lizzie, and they do everything together.  Because I didn't know if a friendship would ever be possible for Lizzie, I appreciate it so much more.
