Work with disabled children is a slow process, and we seldom get to see the fruit of our labors. One CDI staff member was going about his physical therapy business, when the mother of one of the disabled kids stop by. “Monty” didn’t think much of it because this mom frequently stopped by to see her son, one of the boys Monty does therapy with. But this day was different. The lady wasn’t just coming by to visit her son but to get the documentation, collect his things, and take the boy home from the institution!
“Why are you taking him back now?” Monty asked, with a mixture of surprise and relief. The mother answered quickly, “Because he can walk now!” Monty’s hours of repetitive therapy paid off for this boy, and Monty was gratified by the chance to see results.
