On Tuesday, Ben and I had a few minutes left in our session. I asked if he had anything he wanted to share.This was his message!
I WANT TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH THAT RPM HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. I AM NOW ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY FAMILY LIKE NEVER BEFORE. IT HAS CHANGED MY RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERYONE. I AM NOW READING AND TALKING WITH BETH ABOUT MUSIC. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE THIS SIMPLE JOY WITH MY SISTER. I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH MOM ON TEXT. THAT IS SOMETHING I NEVER DREAMED WAS POSSIBLE. IS AS IF ALL MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE BUT IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER EVERY TIME WE WORK TOGETHER. I AM SO GRATEFUL. I CAN NEVER EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO ME.
Sometimes during our sessions, Ben has conversations with family members via text. He spells what he wants to say on the letter board and I type it into my phone. This has been a beautiful experience! Through RPM, Ben is now having fantastic conversations with his mom and big sister. As a result of conversations about books and music, Ben’s sister has created several play lists for him (his request was, “I WOULD LIKE AS MUCH EXPOSURE TO AS MANY GENRES AS POSSIBLE THAT WILL INFORM MY TASTES”) and after discovering a shared love of mysteries and history, she is reading The DaVinci Code to him every night. Ben reports that he loves the history in the book but the best part is hanging out with his sister!
YES, yes I do have the best job in the world!!! Ben and I took these selfies to celebrate this moment! I hope your day is filled with great communication, love and plenty to celebrate! ~Elizabeth
