Feisty, stubborn, opinionated (even though he has never spoken a word.)
These are words I would use to describe Adam at times. These attributes in the “normal world” would be considered negative, but for kids like Adam they are powerful STRENGTHS.
Only a stubborn personality could fight as much as he has. He wants to exist.
He wants to thrive. He wants to get out of the bed, he wants to play. He is determined. The neurologist is lowering his phenobarb and trileptol. I look forward to a slow awakening, so I pray for patience and endurance to keep up with this boys mighty spirit.
I often ask myself how in the world has this child made it through all he has. It seems that God knows the right ingredients for miracles because he sure did sprinkle a little attitude, stubbornness, a whole lot of strong-will and than topped him off with good looks and nice hair! Definitely can’t forget the nice hair oh… and long lashes. He is a lady’s man indeed.
He amazes me more and more each day. Today was a nice day. The weather was perfect for sitting outside and painting. I really take special joy in moments like these. Thanks Be to God.
