Grace for Rett » Grace's Life with Rett Syndrome

Did Elijah keep quiet all day?

Thank you thank you THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Elijah’s vow of silence for Rett Syndrome. He exceeded his goal by £20 and got some very generous donations.

When I picked him up from school, the headmistress said he had spoken once when he cut his finger. We then went to the park and while Jack and Rosie played afar off, I looked at Elijah next to me and he had tears rolling down his cheeks 🙁 He said “I can’t do it anymore” and felt he’d failed. So he may not have kept quiet for a full 24 hours, but he definitely endured some hardship for his sister!

So thank you everyone for supporting Elijah in his ambitions. He’s so much like me when I was little!

You can say that again 🙂 He sure is as determined as you were. The first time you had a loose tooth I was like, “Would you like some help pulling that out?” and you were like, “No, I want to do it by myself!” You proceeded to spend The next two hours in the bathroom in front of the mirror wiggling the heck out of that tooth. In the end, voila, you came out with a smile on your face and a tooth in your little hand. 🙂 you were so happy with your accomplisment. My determined little girl. You reminded me of…well, me 😉 Love-Mom
