Olivia has never said the word, “Mama” or spoke the words, “I love you”. My daughter is nonverbal, but she does not lack communication.
Even though none of these words have ever passed over her lips, my heart heard and felt each and every one.
You see, her eyes communicate every emotion, every thought, every word.
It is true when they say, “the eyes are the windows to our souls”. Every time I look into those awesome blues, I see love, joy, and wonderment for the world around her.
She portrays more in a single glance, then I ever could in a thousand words.
I don’t know if her speech will ever develop, it’s something only time will tell. However, I do know this…”Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence” ~Helen Keller
