Christmas Joy

This is my daughter. I don’t post many personal things on here, but that may change. She is autistic, among other things. Her body is 15 but her cognitive development is much younger. If you ask her, she’ll say she is six. She’s had it very rough the past few years, mainly due to puberty, and she continues to have many challenges. Tonight we went to a local Christmas parade to watch my son, her brother (9), who was riding on our church float. I had to capture this moment because it has literally been years since we’ve seen her this joyful and interactive. I want to weep with gratitude and am daily humbled at the immense honor it is to be her mom. You’ll have to click the link to watch the video. Sorry.
