Where’s mom…..


Danny is nonverbal.

And not for lack of trying. Boy, the amount of speech therapy intervention boggles my mind when I think back on it.

He has pretty significant apraxia. When we did his genome mapping, the genes associated with apraxia were lit like Christmas trees.

But every once in a while….

Words fall out of Danny’s mouth. Actual totally appropriate to the situation words will fall out.

It happened the other day at Dr Pam’s.

Kate and Danny went ahead while I checked us in and paid the copay.

Clear as day Danny asked Kate “where’s mom?”

(Only, I guess, the words were all run together “wheresmom”.)

I wish I hadn’t been “lost”. I would have loved to hear his voice.
