Griffin Bonded with NaNa and PaPa

Griffin has been doing so very well that it just astounds me. He woke me up this morning at 5:30 saying "Let's go see NaNa and PaPa over and over until finally he went into their room and woke them up. It was a good thing that they were planning on getting up at that time already because my dad was due to have surgery this morning. Griffin gave them both hugs and said "good morning". He has bonded with my parents so well and actually seems to miss them today. As he was sitting on the toilet using it all by himself, he asked for NaNa and PaPa again and again. Now, to me , that is a big deal that he misses them so much. When my sister came by to visit, Griffin was doing a great job at initiating social interaction and wanted her to tickle him. It truly warms my heart that even though Griffin has never met these family members that he loves them all the same and warmed up to them as though he has known them his whole life. I will keep you posted on what we are doing to the best of my ability. We might be in a hotel room for a few nights so in that case I won't be able to post but as soon as I am at a computer again I'll let ya know what we're up to. I haven't checked my e-mail as often as I would like but I do still get it so Tina, Amy, and Steve, I will get your e-mail and will try to write back if I am able. Until next time take care all and hope you are all well, I sure do miss reading your blogs but I'm sure that I'll catch up as soon as we return home. Oh yea, I am having some technical difficulty with the camera situation so sorry there's no photos yet, but for sure after we get home I will have lots (I think)

Hi Lora

I am so happy to hear Griffin is interacting and bonding with his family. It is so warming to the heart to hear when our special needs children make this transition in life.
Once again thank you so much for the card that you & Griffin sent to me. It means a lot to know you are such a wonderful person and friend. Take care and hugs to you all
