Several weeks ago, I talked with a mom who told me that one of her prayers early on for her child was to see a smile each day, to have a connection with her daughter. Things were tough but seeing a smile always helped.
That conversation has been in my thoughts. Smiling is not something that Brayden does on a regular basis. In fact he can go weeks and weeks without one, without showing any sign of happiness. I have NO idea how to make him smile (and he does not laugh, at least that we know of). If I was honest, I must say that lately that has been one of the hardest things...no smiles. He typically has a face of indifference or annoyance. But happy rarely happens. I have been praying to see him, his smiles, more of his personality.
