One Small Step For Yaffa

Yaffa’s art project

This may be slightly off topic, but, I must share my excitement. 

Yaffa used to be on a feeding tube. Weaning her off was a slow and difficult process.

Last night, for the first time, Yaffa ate a cheese stick!

I realize that to some, this does not seem exceptional or noteworthy. But, for Yaffa, it is extraordinary.

Up until tonight, we had never seen her do this!

I was so excited to see her do this I had to take a picture. 

It brought tears to my eyes.


Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that are major accomplishments and quiet miracles.

Go Yaffa!

      It really was. We both just stood there. Yaffa knew we were happy but the funny thing was, she ate it without effort and didn’t seem to know why we were staring at her. I think she liked getting her picture taken and she liked what I did with her art work.

    How exciting! You are so inspiring in that you can now write and teach the guidebook to Holland. We all want to learn your language of faith, patience and optimism and we are all your Holland friends. You have so much to teach us all…
