An Amazing Girl!

One step at a time

Elly has been so motivated to walk that she even asks to exercise! A couple of weeks ago we reported that she was able to climb two flights of stairs on her own. Well.......last week she wanted to try three and she did it!

Then a couple of days later she wanted to try four! And she did it!

Then last Friday or Saturday she decided she wanted to try all six flights. You see we live on the sixth floor and her foster dad, Randy, had been carrying her up and down those stairs since she arrived. Now, it's much faster to just carry her up and down.  It takes a lot of patience and time to do it this way, but worth every minute when we see the progress she continues to make.  Good things come to those who wait--it's especially true in this case!

Anyway, back to the six flights.  And guess what?! She did it!! Now, for the last few days, she has been going up and down all six flights of stairs! Can you believe it?! She is an amazing girl and we are seeing that in so many ways, but this being the most obvious--right now!

We couldn't be prouder of you Elly! Keep up the great work and we'll all see you walking and running everywhere some day soon!

It just goes to show you that the old saying is right, one step at a time and you'll surely get there! One step at a time!
