I have shared this before on my facebook page but I wanted to share it here. This first video is from April 2011. Lincoln was 22 months old. This was right after we were told he was thought to have autism. In the video I am trying to get him to look my way or respond to me in any way and he does not. I believe I say his name 16-17 times and he never even looks at me. At that time, he didn't respond to much of anything. He stood in the backyard and would dump mulch over his head and into the air and watch it fall. He was as they say, "locked in his own world." It was literally heartbreaking to watch.
This is a video from last week
I am amazed at how far my little boy has come and know fully it is our faith that has brought us where we are today. I fully believe Jesus died on the cross for us so that we might be saved AND healed. That is what I claim for Linky, that he is already healed. We are seeing the fruit of those words daily.
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat the fruit thereof."
