"We are going to focus on LIFE for Katya. I believe, one day, she will amaze the world."

Dr. Ben Carson on Katya Dueck

When Katya first came home, she did not know how to color. She did not know how to draw--not even a simple stick figure. Nothing. Absolutely NOTHING. She had no motor skills to be able to do anything more than grasp the pen or pencil in her fist and her arms wildly went from one edge of the paper to the other, much as a 6 month old infant might if you handed them a pencil or crayon.

Today, I took a good look at my fridge and laughed. Joyful, joyful, happy, happy laughs. Because, this is what I saw on the front of the fridge.

And the side of the fridge.

And the other side of the fridge . . .

As you can see, Katya's drawings and paintings TOTALLY fill my fridge--in layers . . . all placed there by her--because she knows we like to stick her important art work on the fridge.

And look how cute her drawings are!!


Awfully cute, huh??

Just like the artist herself!

(Friday when she was home sick--drinking some fizzy lemon drink for her sore throat/cough from the local discount store.)
