Joy is growing by leaps and bounds and so is her understanding and speech. Just a snippet from today. I told her that I would finally get dressed and then we would go for a walk at a duck pond. She runs into her room, I ask "Are you getting your clothes?" She absentmindely nods yes, but walks into my room, not with jeans, but with one of her duck books. And then repeats "Duck pond". She does need to work a little on enunciation, but hey! she knew where to find a picture of a duck with a pond :)
I found this fascinating quote today: Can you conceive of a situation where you might actually have to ask people for help? Or want to promote something? Anything? Garage sale? Sell your house? Help your spouse or kid find a job? Raise money for a sick friend or relative? You can certainly get on the phone and call people, or send out a group email to all your friends and contacts. But most people, without the benefit of a social network, don't have the network power to make the kind of difference that can be made with a healthy group of online contacts.
