Only two days of therapy had passed and we suddenly had what seemed, for the first time in her short life, a normal child
At the end of the second week of treatment, we arrived at the Clinic excited and very eager to share with the medical staff the great advances that we had seen after the second therapy. The Director of Center approached me and asked me to accompany him to the games room where Raquel was. I will never forget that moment. He said, “Look at your daughter.” Raquel was there, sitting by a window. She was point to the passing cars and asking out loud: “Blue Car?”, “Green Car?”, also an airplane “Blue Plane with White?”
Most incredible of all was that not only she had improved her ability to communicate, but her emotional projection also took a 180-degree turn. My daughter now asked me to get her up and carry her in my arms. She hugged myself for the first time voluntarily and repeatedly for more than 15 minutes. Aside from improving in language, she also improved her emotional connection
They were the most beautiful 15 minutes of my life. My daughter recognized me and expressed it openly and freely for the first time
Since that day he did not let me go, everything she wanted to do, was with me. When I realized these great changes I began to carry out other activities with my daughter
What I can not forget to mention is that Raquel’s anxiety did not allow us to take her anywhere. When we went to a mall, the screams were so loud that a man even asked if she needed an ambulance
To take her to the USA was horrible too, because customs officers could not understand how this girl could not calm down with her mother
After 3 weeks of therapy Raquel even tolerated going to Disney. That frightful part of our lives was over. Now I was free to walk with my daughter and she was for the first time able to enjoy the rides.
