August/September 2020 Praises
My parents willingness to watch Sarah a few times this summer so we could get a break. It is such a gift and Sarah loves her time with them!
Sarah loves to do her hair. It is part of her morning routine. She even taught herself to braid her hair!
She qualified for summer school, but we also had a few weeks off from it. While it is nice to have services to help her maintain, it has also been a long summer of meltdowns with it.
Sarah had a dentist appointment and it went pretty well. One point she yelled out, “Zebra! Giraffe!” Not sure why as there were no pictures anywhere of zebras or giraffes. She makes me laugh!
August/September 2020 Prayer Requests
Pray for us as we begin this on-line learning. We know she will have meltdowns. Praying it goes better than we think. Pray the school can safely open up again soon.
Her OCD behaviors. Currently, she is biting her fingers/cuticles. Once she starts she can’t stop until she does each finger/each side of her fingers twice. If you stop her, she has a meltdown and starts over again. She still nose picks and shoves pens up her nose. I am constantly hiding pens from her. She also has this weird OCD behavior of removing the kitchen towels from the oven handle door and placing them on the kitchen counter. I put them back on the oven handle door and she takes them off and throws them in a pile on the counter. It is a non-stop cycle.
We can’t visit housing options until COVID is over. We hope to look next spring.
Thank you and bless you for praying!!
