Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Sometimes they smiled at us; sometimes they smiled at their mom, their siblings, or their horse. No matter, these children’s smiles did make life more beautiful for us this past weekend.
The three days we spent at McKenna Farms in Dallas, Georgia, filled us with joy and brought out our smiles, too. Seeing and hearing both moms and children tell of their victories: sitting up unsupported for the first time at age six, giving a horse verbal commands to follow at age fourteen when you’ve been silent with autism since age two, going for days after a hippotherapy session without having a single meltdown when your history is of one meltdown after another – these are the victories we celebrated over the weekend.
You’ll hear more of these children’s stories as we feature each child on Jacob’s Fund’s blog. But right now, just look at those smiles!
