Seeing Ben in his baseball uniform and happily donning the cap he had once vigorously resisted. That was one miracle, at least for me, especially given that his obsession with baseball has lay dormant since his autism diagnosis at age 3.
Today was Opening Day, a time for Ben to meet his coach, teammates, and enjoy the festivities. But no T-ball today; that begins next week. Hundreds of good people gathered for this event–talk about community! A huge thank you to the Miracle League organizers and volunteers.
And the other miracle? Had a chance to chat with Teresa, and she was completely open to giving me more time with the boys over the summer and during the week. Her initial resistance, it turns out, was because she thought I wanted the boys on her weekends, which she, naturally, didn’t want to give up. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend…and that the little miracles abound.
