One of Claudine’s big goals for 2019 was to learn how to hop and jump. After months of practicing pushing off the ground with both feet, she executed three jumps back to back today!!! On to bigger and better goals 💪🏽

#tbt to the only time in Emmy’s life I could call her chunky. Back when Emmy was a baby we just enjoyed all the normal baby stuff. She would eat, sleep, play, and poop. She was so sweet and easy (still is). Occasionally my mind would wonder to the future and I’d wonder, when will she walk?, When will she talk or will she ever talk?, When will she....? I think all of us with a little one with special needs and maybe even those with typical kids do this too. The one that really use to worry me was the talking. Not all adults with Down syndrome are verbal. How will she communicate her needs if she doesn’t speak? How will I connect with her? Last week after watching @peanutbutterfalcon (go see it!!!), I walked up to two young men with DS, one of whom I’d met prior and the other man I’d never met. I said hello and asked if they enjoyed the movie. It was then I realized that the one young man was non verbal. He couldn’t speak and yet I had the most amazing conversation with him as he smiled, took my hand into his hand and taught me a secret handshake 😭. He looked me straight in the eyes. He connected with me. It was then that I realized that we have to listen more carefully because not all communication is verbal. That was one of the best conversations I’ve ever had! Once again, thank you Emmy for showing me more about humanity. #theluckyfew#nothingdownaboutit#nonverbal
I have been involved in scouting my entire life. My mom was a troop leader and I was a girl scout, so getting my children involved was a natural decision. I wanted Christian mentoring for my son outside of our regular church activities, and scouting provided it. As a parent, the first years of scouting were spent at my son's troop meetings. Then, as he moved up, I began serving as my daughter's troop leader. But, I also served in different areas, such as taking over the popcorn fundraising for my son's troop. As a Christian, I understand the importance of having a servant's heart. Interestingly, my educational background is in speech pathology where I also learned sign language for pursuing a career in interpreting one day. One thing led to another, and I ended up being asked to lead a troop separately from my own children. I am now the troop leader and interpreter for the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind. My troop has 22 boys, ranging from 6-15 years of age, all with visual impairments, hearing loss, or both. When I was given this opportunity, I knew it was a chance to use my God-given gifts to serve. In this role, I can speak openly about my faith in a way that is not generally accepted in the public school setting, and I can help these young men see firsthand the importance of serving others. Recently, the school residential director told me the number of demerits the boys in my troop have received has significantly decreased since they have brought scouting into their school environment. I can see the difference in the way they act and how they care for one another. Being able to use the talents God has blessed me with in a way to serve this unique demographic feels natural, and knowing God is using me to make a difference feels even better.
