Mahri's Fight: Finding Her Voice

Mahri is my sweet, smart 10 year old daughter.
She was diagnosed with Global Dyspraxia along with a couple more disabilities at the age of 3. Our journey as most parents with children with special needs has had plenty of highs and lows. Mahri has been in speech therapy and occupational therapy for most of her life. She continues to show growth in all areas of her life.
Mahri is determined to be heard. Between her few words, see sign, hand gesture, facial expressions and sometimes her iPad she uses ALL ways to communicate with the world she lives in.
I have learned as her mother to live in the moment. And to embrace life for what it is.

Mahri is my beautiful, happy girl not defined by her disabilities but by her ability!
