Participant Best of All:  Beatrix

Beatrix attended the Noon Year’s Eve Party with her family. When Lauren said hello to her, she looked her in the eyes and said ‘hi’ back right away. This special moment is an indicator of growth for Bea this “simple” interaction is really so much more! This event signifies Bea’s comfort with Lauren, a relatively new person in Bea’s life, her ability to clearly communicate with others when past articulation has not been intelligible, visual connection when in the past she may not have looked at anyone love seeing Beatrix shine and demonstrate all that she can do in this Best of All moment!
