The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog

Sue read this book and read me a chapter that hit very close to home.
It has helped us put everything we knew about Emmanuel into perspective. We encourage anyone who has to deal with him to read the chapter. It is amazing, the brain is 85 percent developed by age 3 and 90 percent developed by age 4, when E-man was just coming home to us.

I am so glad I read that chapter - it was a real eye opener, but boy, have you got your work cut out for you! We all know and understand that E-man suffered as a small child, but to read a more scientific explanation of why it continues to effect him so profoundly, helped me at least understand better. I know that you are every bit as loving and persistent in your efforts as the parents described in this chapter, so I would predict that success is guaranteed, but it is a long process, and I'm just glad that you are up to the challenge.
Love to you both,
Nancy

Amen and Amen. I know this road -- I have walked a good measure of it myself. God has found you worthy to lead E-Man all the way to whole.

You are not alone.

E-man is the luckiest boy in the world as I am convinced you are the only people I know capable of taking him on the incredible journey

The chapter was very enlightening. Lots of love is needed and much is available to him. He is very fortunate. Hopefully his school can be as understanding and successful.
