Jessica began talking when she was 6 months old. Her first word was "Mama"! She stopped speaking when she was about 18 months old, after a MMR vaccination. There is a saying, "just because you can not talk, doesn't mean you have nothing to say". I am grateful Jessica sometimes expresses herself in writing. Here is one of her poems...
Spring prepares for resurrection
finds it's companions
Heavens laugh with delight
Crying has been removed.
Meadows are green, brooksare flowing,
life aplenty fills the air.
May music be heard at day
and let the night bring calm.
Meadows are green, sprouts come out
a gentle breeze
makes Winter time wear away.
Hearts are happy to be alive
and good things everyone can give.
