Yesterday marks Mat’s 2nd year in Building Bridges Therapy Center, he started when he was 2.6 years old. Thank you so much BBTC family for the love, patience and guidance because of that he made remarkable improvements emotionally, socially and academically.
As a family we often celebrate it with thanksgiving to God and to those people who served as his angels, big thanks Maam Muffy Lucas for giving us a big “yes” when I asked two years ago if there might be a chance for him to communicate like typical kids and for accepting him in your program/therapy. Teacher Shai Evangelista for handling him starting May 16-31, 2013, teacher Cherry Odal from June 3, 2013 up to present and to all BBTC teachers, teacher Joann, teacher Hazel & teacher Jimberly Lagunda, their speech pathologist consultant.
As for now, he can express himself better, can crack a joke, read, tell short stories, recite poems, composed song/poem and starting to show empathy. Still we respect his uniqueness, being super energetic, his different learning style and preferences for we believe each of us are being wired differently according to God’s purpose. As he is the greatest artist and we are his greatest masterpiece, it’s science that labels individual’s uniqueness as disorder but to the eyes of God he calls it “Special”. God bless everyone! Super big thanks to my friend, Eting for sharing BBTC to us.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13, NIV).
