For any parent there are some unquestionable events regarding their kids. The first time when they say “mom,” the first steps or the first day of school are truly milestones for little babies.
Still, for a parent of an autistic children, things are totally different. These, so waited milestone may not happen at all. It’s the case of Briana Blankenship, mother of a beautiful 5-year-old daughter, named Tailor. This sweet little girl suffers of autism spectrum.
Known as “nonverbal,” this form of autism is very rare. And it makes Taylor unable to communicate. Yet, the little girl understands some words when other people speak.
Miraculously, all have changed in one day. While she and her mom were waiting McDonald’s drive-thru line, something so lovely and touching happened.
“I am ugly crying in the McDonald’s parking lot and the employees probably think I’m crazy. In the drive-thru, I suddenly heard Taylor say ‘MAMA. For those of you that don’t know, Taylor is five and is nonverbal autistic. She has NEVER said a word. EVER.”
“As soon as she said it I grabbed my phone and started recording. I’m pretty sure I held up the drive-thru line but there was no way I wasn’t getting proof of this. I can’t explain how unbelievably grateful and ecstatic I am right now,” Briana said, sharing her beautiful story with the Love What Matters Facebook page.
What was unthinkable for Briana finally happened. A huge milestones for little Taylor and the most beautiful surprise for her mother. Now we all hope for a full recovery!
