Return to Normal

Most people know that KK is an avid reader. As MassHOPE was setting up for their Used Curriculum Sale in June, she chose a book from the free table and started reading the book cover-to-cover. She fell asleep reading that night and woke up reading the next morning. It was pure joy for me to see her doing something she loves. It was amazing. It was normal.

Besides reading, KK also loves to write. Along with a book, she would often be seen carrying a notebook or binder and pencil. She was constantly writing stories...not always finishing, but always starting. She hasn't written very much since April because the right-sided weakness makes it very difficult. On our way home from Boston on Tuesday, KK started sharing an idea she had for a story. She was so excited and so animated. I encouraged her to write down her ideas. She pulled out a notebook and started writing. It has been laborious as she works hard to control the twitching, but she continues to add more to her story each day. It does my heart good to see my girl return to normal!
