independent. That Gift of mine (Nathan .. the possessor of an extra chromosome) has got his groove on. Pretty self reliant of late is he! After spending months and months with an in home therapist, he has got himself in order. Bathing, washing his own hair, eating at the Christmas table with eleven people, brushing teeth, shopping, extra outings after school twice a week .. just to name a few improvements. God is good .. and I am blessed.
