Cameron’s First Nativity // 13.12.12

I was hoping and praying that Speech Therapy to tell me that my son would be fine and that more importantly they had some miracle way of getting him to speak. What I was about to find out was the complete opposite. We started the Speech Therapy with Cameron being observed whilst playing with toys.
