It's been many months since Claire began to lift her hands up in worship when music comes on. Last week, she emulated us in another unexpected way. We were attending Saturday evening Mass at the community, and as Jessica was kneeling, Claire stood next to her and knelt, too! She tried to get comfortable, which was difficult with her clunky shoes on, but she did it nonetheless, for most of the time that we knelt. And she remained very serious and somber the whole time. We both smiled at each other. What a delight she is! It's quite incredible that she does not speak, does not understand too much, but she loves to emulate us in other ways, especially in prayer and in housework! It is not our doing, but God's gift!
