Last week Madison had her first art therapy session -- actually it was just Adam and I this session, giving our families story and talking about our crazy cool little girl. I really enjoyed telling our story to an "outsider," after all it doesn't happen that often that someone doesn't actually know our story.
I loved going back over that past four years. Even though they were filled with an awful lot of heartache there were also so many memories made both inside and outside the hospital walls. I can totally see how some people really dig therapy -- how often does one get to just keep talking and the other person actually has to listen to you.
This coming week we will do a family session. We will have a short talk time and then we will do a family art project -- sounds like fun to me. Madison seems very excited but keeps asking when it will be "her" appointment, meaning without her parents tagging along. That comes next week -- from then on it will be "her" appointment where she can run the show.
I think she is going to be just fine.
