It been a tough year, no mistake and I am so sorry to have let this page lie dormant for sooo long. We had to move house and it was very difficult to find somewhere else. We are now in council housing so won't have to move anymore (fingers crossed)! Yay! But the house was in quite a poor state when we moved in and it has been a long haul. Raffy found it all very hard and our Son-Rise program ground to a halt for several months. He really did not want to leave the previous house. However... things have definitely changed. Raffy is talking up a storm! His words and sentences have improved and developed. He is saying 'I' and 'me', 'you' and 'your'. He is telling us about himself - sometimes loudly!
Here is a photo of our grown up boy. I will be posting more up this week. Our program is now very much alive with a new volunteer just interviewed today. Bringing our total to 3 people!
Gemma, Annie and now Kirsty.
