tiny dancer

This tiny little dancer waited patiently for years for the day a special needs dance class was offered in an area where we lived. 

Today was that day. 

A few weeks back I got an email from a local source for respite care and activities for special needs children. They were, for the first time ever, joining with Ballet Quad Cities and offering a dance class for special needs kids. That is, for kids 8 years and older. I emailed back to show my enthusiasm for such a class and mentioned if they decided to continue the class and offer it in the spring after Leah turned 8, we were definitely interested. She emailed back and said she had spoken with the instructor and would be happy to have Leah an another 7 year old join the class! 

Leah went to the first class last week and loved it. And we both agreed a leotard and tutu were musts. So shopping we went. She picked out her entire outfit and I think she looks stunning! The class runs for six weeks and hopefully they will do it again in the spring! 

My heart feels as happy as this tiny dancer's face.
