An update

Peter has continued to show improvement since his last treatments in August. Everyone notices the changes, a leap forward, it seems. He is so much more "with us " then he has been in four years... He is playing and interacting with us more normally. He has been very happy, healing definitely is taking place. We are starting a new therapy program with him, it is a home based targeted intervention program. We went to Covington Kentucky, where he was evaluated and they will coach us how to help him. They work with the neuroplastisity ("Neuroplasticity is the brain's amazing capacity to change and adapt.... Neuroplasticity is definitely a factor in recovery from brain injury. In fact, it is the basis for much of our cognitive and physical rehabilitation practices. Part of rehabilitation is aimed at trying to rebuild connections among the nerve cells — or neurons. This "re-wiring" of the brain can make it possible for a function previously managed by a damaged area to be taken over by another undamaged area. The connections among the cells are infinitely receptive to this type of change and expansion.") of his brain. The organization was founded 40 years ago, Peter was evaluated by the founder, and he has high hopes for Peter. Peter's behavioral disorders are still out of control, he has no control over his emotions and feelings, this program should really help that area.

We are very thankful for this opportunity that the Lord has brought for Peter...trusting Him for the results. The improvement from the last treatments make implementing this program a bit easier then if we would have tried six months ago. 

God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30
