It’s true. For us adults, there are times when we need to hear, or observe something over and over, in order to “get it.”
After seeing this, for me. I immediately turned around and did it.
This boy pushes through some obvious sensory challenges to excitedly write this letter to his congregation, pointing to one letter at a time:
Dear Mill Creek Parish-
I am happy I have learned to talk by typing. I give thanks to God, to you also for all the prayers and support you have given me.
What astonished me about this boy, was the amount of patience he displayed; as well as the graciousness with which he expressed himself.
The day I saw this video, I immediately made and laminated a “keyboard” using legal size paper. After finding a yahoo image I liked, with a little cropping, enlarging etc. it was ready to go.
With all the informative books my son has been given to read, (See A Good Problem post) it should not have been SO astonishing at what came out…. But, it still was astonishing… even to us.
The 4th thing he ever wrote, and 2nd creative writing project, was the following:
Who’s on the train?
My name is Jacob. I am on the train.
I am going to your house for a new year’s meal.
Before I get to your house I need to go to the market to buy you a housewarming gift.
