My Kait was invited to her first non-family birthday party!!! It’s an exciting day. The thing that makes it even more wonderful is that this is for a girl that isn’t in Kaitlyn’s class and doesn’t even go to our church! We went to another church for a few months when we first moved here. I made friends with a girl who’s sister I graduated with. Anyway, this gals brother-in-law is severely Autistic and she has made a point to check up with me every now and again. She e-mailed a week or so ago and asked if she could invite Kaitlyn to her daughters 7th birthday. I was so taken aback. I can’t get over the thoughtfulness. To include a child simply because you know it is difficult for her to make friends. Things like this just make me smile. Perhaps we will have real friends after all!!
