January 30, 2009 by Victoria Strong
Today was the first day of our speech therapy music class that we recently enrolled in through Tri-Counties Regional Center (a State program for people with disabilities).

Home Safely, Stanford Trip Fine

January 23, 2009 by Victoria Strong

Our trip to Stanford went well and Gwendolyn was such a trooper. All of the doctors are very pleased with how well Gwendolyn is doing, especially her stability and lack of illness (knock on wood). They all commented on how social she is, even with doctors. She especially likes when they listen to...
