Today our Thomas is 7 years old! Thomas we are so proud of you! You are learning to overcome so many of the challenges you face as a special needs boy. It thrills our hearts to see how the Lord is allowing you to grow in knowledge and understanding. It is our prayer that soon you will be able to understand God's love for you! Happy Birthday Thomas! We love you!

We hope you will enjoy watching Thomas as we sing to him, and as he receives his birthday present. His scooter from Grandma & Grandpa Reese! The video will be added as soon as Phil can compress it for me.

I've had this post written since the 24th and also want to ad that Thomas was so excited about his scooter that he went door to door in town here telling all our neighbors about his scooter and his 7 candles on his birthday cake! Just when we think Thomas is learning his boundaries well we realize once again that Autistic children don't comprehend boundaries, danger, or proper social behavior. We had to take the scooter away a couple times because of his going too far away from home on the scooter. Thomas definitely likes his new scooter. He has been sleeping with it and carrying it with him all day everywhere he goes!
