For those of you who don't know it after a year of praying and dreaming about an intense OT program for Mate our dream came true. From July 14th we are in Birmingham Alabama and he receives 6 hours of therapy Monday through Friday. The other four children are home with Dave and Manna's parents are coming to help out for 2 weeks in the next few days. We arrived July 14th and starting our 9th day of treatment on Wednesday. It has been incredible to watch Matthew working so hard every day 6 hours. He is making a lot of progress every day. We are showered in our wonderful host family's love and warm hospitality every day. We could not requested a better home like theirs. The occupational therapist who works with Matthew is a dynamic and really hard core young lady (Ashley). Again, wonderful personality match for Matthew. She pushes so hard, is very firm with him and makes sure he uses his left side without cheating. We are able to go to church three time a week since our host dad is an associate pastor of the church. Almost the whole church knows Matthew now and he stands out with his freshly picked pink cast now. (Next week he hopefully picks orange).There is not a day when we would not think of you. It is really a dream to be here and do this program with him. Thank you so much for your love and support. Manna and Mate
