Message from Emma
I may not have a video camera, but I do have an iPhone with video! And after many, many failed uploads onto my ancient, maxed-out pc, I finally was able to download a video. The quality and sound could be better since I had to perch it on some books and stuffed animals, but I just have to share it. Emma agrees!
As you can see, I give her a little support on her arm and I help her to “reset” her hand and fingers before each letter. I think the effort and concentration she puts into this is evident. How we take for granted that we can so easily control our bodies – we don’t give a second thought to a simple thing like hitting a letter key on a keyboard. She even put a period after “hope”. I’m so proud of her ~ and blessed by her thoughtfulness towards other children like herself. I’m still in awe!
Disclaimer: Emma does NOT like Twilight! That would be my shirt that is way too small (probably because it’s made for a teenager) She was not really thrilled about having this shirt on in the video. I told her I’d clear that up! HA!
