A Unique Gift that says: "Thank You"
If you need to say a special "thank you", A Gift of Poetry is an excellent way of expressing your
innermost thoughts and feelings.
(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. Linda wanted something special for son's speech therapist, Maura. Linda has kindly given her permission for her poem and story to be published)
What is your name : Linda
Who do you want the poem written for: My son Jordan's speech therapist Maura.
Why do you want the poem written: When my son turned a year old he started getting sick frequently, he had multiple ear infections and had rota virus several times which caused him to be in the hospital often one of those times he had stopped breathing. When he finally overcame all of his illnesses. Jordan was almost 2 and didn't want to talk very much, he only knew about 5 words he would point or drag you to what he wanted. We were concerned if he could learn to talk. Maura became his speech Therapist and has been a wonderful person to work with.
What are the key messages you would like to send: Maura came into our lives and started when Jordan was 2 and worked with him for a year. It was a tough road in the beginning because he was scared and confused. Maura was very patient, kind, and gentle to him. She taught him to speak by playing with games and toys it was so amazing to watch her techniques. She had taken this sad little boy, who was frustrated because nobody understood him to this happy little talking 3 year old.
Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you would like to share: The most heart-warming moment was when Jordan asked us for something he wanted (which was a drink) instead of hitting or pulling your hand to the fridge. I started to cry it was so comforting for us to hear his little voice and finally understand him. Because then at that moment we felt he was going to be ok. For so long because of his illnesses we thought he was going to have some communicating problems.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts: It takes a special kind of person to do what Maura does. I can't say or thank her enough for what she has been able to do for Jordan. She is my hero. I'm at a loss for words to truly say how glad we are Maura came into our lives.
What style of poem would you prefer (happy, sad, romantic etc.): happy
Please choose which package you would prefer: Standard
I think it is perfect, we don't need to change anything. I would like the cloud paper. You may use the poem on your web site.
