Jennifer stated that she had no idea that Adam would learn at the rate he learned. She said Bost became Adam’s second home, that he loved his therapists and teachers. Because Bost had her child for eight hours a day, this single mom was able to be calm and to rest. Jennifer said it saved her mind and restored her.
Jennifer made commented about the impact of Bost on their family’s life and what she would like others to know about Bost: “The mother is the first and best teacher. There is no magic pill, but there is an extension of a community of people. It does really take a village to raise a child. What Bost did for my family is like a miracle. Now I can focus on Adam’s future instead of living from moment to moment.”
Adam’s speech therapist, Kasey, commented that early on Adam didn’t say anything. Now he is much more interactive and more social if not verbal. He interacts so much more with others and speaks more at home. Kasey said she thinks he is smart and funny and shared a little of his humor. While trying to encourage him to be more verbal in his requests, she said to him, “I know how smart you are, and you have to let everyone else know how smart you are. Use your words.” Kasey said that Adam wrinkled his nose at her and smiled his precocious smile then simply replied, “No.”
