What a Difference!

Today, Adam was watching 2 new videos of Jillian’s progress at physiotherapy today. The wonderful marvel of the iPhone allows Adam to catch up on things she’s done. While he was watching, he mentioned that it’s really a shame that Jillian will no longer have Amber as her physiotherapist. She has made such HUGE progress in a few short years! I thought I would share a few videos of her progress thus far. We’ll be up for another round of botox in June, then I’m back to square one with my insurance company. Ugh. As Adam and I have said before, raising a special needs child shouldn’t be this difficult.

Enjoy the videos! (They’re all pretty short!)

And finally, today. May 24, 2012 I’m so proud of both my girls. And I’m excited to share this with you! Thanks for joining us on this journey.


  1. “I’m doing it Mommy!” … omgosh, that just melted my heart.

    I hope you break the insurance company’s knee caps. You’re supposed to excel at that, aren’t you? :)

  2. You and your daughter both are amazing and inspiring and I pray you continue to get the botox she needs without the hassle of hunting them down for the $$.

  3. Her giggles in the last video made me cry. She is so amazing… I can’t believe that insurance company won’t approve it “full-term.”

  4. Jillian is such a cutie and so excited about her accomplishments. I wish I could slap some sense in the decision makers of the insurance company.

  5. Aw! Sweet little Jillian melts my heart! I hope you are able to figure something out for the botox. That stupid insurance company needs to cover the things she NEEDS to live a normal life!!!
