Danny is non verbal.
He communicates with sign and some word approximations. We do ok, he makes his point known.
But sometimes we are gifted words falling out of his mouth. I can’t explain why, but they are always completely appropriate to the situation words.
Tonight, as I was giving him his “good night buddy” hug he spoke the words….
I love you.
(He has an I love you sign, which he uses frequently)
But tonight was the first time in his fifteen years I’ve ever heard “I love you” out of his mouth meant for me.
Not going to lie.
