Carrie’s Wedding, beautiful!

Carrie’s Wedding, beautiful!

Weddings and things like it are really tough for Zane.  This one was the exception, and a lot of fun.  The current ST made a social story for him and he knew what to expect as far as how the evening flowed.  Plus, it was Carrie.  He loves Carrie.  As it turns out, we ended up sitting next to Elise, his OT (who he also loves), and the other people at the table were other people from his therapy place, so it was a lot more relaxing for us.  They notice the things he is doing well, how well he is handling the overwhelming environment instead of the looks you get because he isn’t a Stepford child.

The pictures aren’t the greatest because it is a tough environment for him, but he really did have a great time.  He danced the way only a kid can dance, free and joyful and happy.  It was wonderful.  Zora was also a bit overwhelmed and vacilated between excited, clapping, and clingy.  I actually think this time around, she had a harder time then he did with the chaos.

    It looked like a laidback atomsphere.  Good for Zane just for getting through it.  He and Zora look so sweet!

  • Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better? — Jane Nelson
