Sad transition...

Since Sophie turned 3 years old in October, she had to transition out of the Missouri First Steps program and into the Early Childhood Special Eduction program. So we had to say goodbye to all of her therapist. It was a very sad week. She had 5 therapist so we scheduled it to where we only had to say goodbye to one every day the week before she turned 3. We miss them dearly. These people were such an important part of our lives for so long. Sophie started receiving therapy when she was only 9 months old. I know Sophie would not be where she is at today if it wasn't for each and every one of them. There is no way I could ever thank these people enough. They will always hold a special place in my heart. It takes an amazing person to be a therapist to a special needs child. So here they are...

Karen, Physical Therapist

Jen, Behavioral Therapist

Staci, Developmental Therapist

Erin, Speech Therapist

Olivia, Occupational Therapist (not pictured)

It's so wonderful to have people as tuned into your kiddo as you are! We have a really special connection with some of Trevy's too...and even though we're a ways off from transitioning...I still dread it!

I'm sure Sophie's new peeps will be just as great tho!

Saying goodbye to our early intervention therapists was so sad! But we love our team in the preschool too.

How's the Neurontin working?

I love the pics of Sophie with her therapists! I can imagine how difficult it is to transition, especially with therapists who have been with you and Sophie through it all. I am sure it was just as tough on them to leave your sweet girl! Also, congrats on your pregnancy and hope you are feeling well! I am very happy for you! ;-)
