William's Fight: Fighting With God And A Speech Pathologist

William is 5 years old and was diagnosed with apraxia at the age of 3. At the time of the diagnosis neither my husband, me, or his mom knew anything about apraxia. We quickly read up and began treatment with a pathologist. One Sunday at church I felt lead to have him prayed for by our church. God heard those prayers and is helping him daily with his speech. Our pathologist says we've still got a long way to go, but we are excelling every day.

Christmas 2014 William wanted so badly to have a speaking part in the play at church but was unable to because of his speech. My mom said this time next year he will be able to have a part. Christmas 2015 came and our warrior not only had a speaking part but introduced the play! A wonderful victory and we praise the Lord for it.

We all know it will be a long up hill battle for him but with the help of God and our wonderfully supportive pathologist he's kicking apraxia's butt!
