    that is a wonderful story!! Thanks for sharing it.
    My daughter teaches special needs children, and I'm thinking about making her an I SPY quilt for her classroom, now. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Some people are just like that aren't they? It's great when they're paired up with folks like me. My Dad used to say I was vaccinated with a phonograph needle. :D

    Wasn't it Einstein who didn't talk til he was a much older toddler? Just because they don't speak doesn't mean they don't know the words. Some kids are naturally quiet then there are kids you wish would just shush!
