He Read ... I Wept



I see a yellow car.

I see a horse and a boy.

I see a fish and a yellow ball.

These are the first words I've ever heard Nathan read. He brought home his first reading paper from school yesterday. (Even wrote his name on top of the page.) Little words, line upon line, little steps forward, one foot at a time.

(Nathan is my 10 year old son that has Down syndrome.)
