Thank you thank you THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Elijah’s vow of silence for Rett Syndrome. He exceeded his goal by £20 and got some very generous donations.
When I picked him up from school, the headmistress said he had spoken once when he cut his finger. We then went to the park and while Jack and Rosie played afar off, I looked at Elijah next to me and he had tears rolling down his cheeks 🙁 He said “I can’t do it anymore” and felt he’d failed. So he may not have kept quiet for a full 24 hours, but he definitely endured some hardship for his sister!
So thank you everyone for supporting Elijah in his ambitions. He’s so much like me when I was little!
