First Steps

 One-and-a-half year old Catherine is very small. She has fetal alcohol syndrome and is behind in development. Catherine has been watching other children learn to walk all around her, but never been strong enough to do it herself. During the last few days, she's been standing herself up and balancing on her feet but never taking a step.
Today, she took her first steps!!! It was so special! Catherine was so proud of herself and smiling so big. When she wasn't smiling, she would suck in her cheeks as she concentrated. So cute.
This made my heart very happy and proud because I've been hoping she would start walking before I have to leave. Yay for Catherine!


  1. How wonderful that you were able to capture that darling girl in such a proud moment!

  2. Thank you for sharing the pics of Catherine. She has come a long way since her first day at CoL.

  3. Great job there Catherine...the Great! Good to see she has a spirit of determination.
