My first school photo


I was delighted to fetch Deqlan from school today to recieve his pack of first school photos - WE COULDNT BE PROUDER!!! I cant wait to hang it on our wall, i have dreamt and prayed for this moment , thank You Lord for another answered prayer
I am also ecstatic to tell you that when I fetched Deqlan and told him to say goodbye to Florie, one of the ladies at Little Leaps, HE LIFTED HIS HAND AND WAVED TO HER!!!!!!! This is the first time Deqlan has ever waved goodbye to somebody , a massive deal to us. Its one of the red flags in autism, no waving or pointing, my dear friends, Deqlan is now doing both, Thank You Lord!

Masha Allah, lovely picture and very happy to hear he can point and wave good bye. Keep up the hard work. I will say Allhamdullillah (thanks to God)
Insha Allah my son will be able to do that one day. I can feel the joy you are having, hope Lord answers your prayer more.

Our darling and precious Deqlan,

Your first school photograph, is quite truthfully, magnificent and truly captures the essence of who you are, a magnificent little hero ! Your strength, confidence, and happiness reflects from your beautiful presence and reveals to us that you are exactly where you are meant to be at this time in your life and that you are content and flourishing, continually taking "Giant Leaps" at your ... nursery school, "Littlle Leaps". You amaze us daily with your progress on every level. We are so very proud of you and love you immeasurably ! You remain our miracle and we are humbled each and every day that God works His love, promises and faith, in and through you. May God forever hold you in the palms of His hands, guide and light your every step. We are so very proud of you and know that Mamma and Dadda are beaming with immeasurable joy, pride and delight. We cannot wait to receive our prints ! Our love for you is immeasurable.
All our love,
Nanna and Grandpa
