Give the ultimate gift. Give the gift of communication to Addison!

First of all I want to thank you all for your support and love.

Do you have children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews? Do you get overjoyed and excited when they run to you and exclaim "Hi [Mommy], I missed you!"? Do you love to hear their imaginative stories? Do you sometimes wish for a moment of peace and quiet from all their questions?

We have a child, her name is Addison, most of you know her story already and have shared tears in watching our video and smiles when hearing of her recent accomplishments. Addison has never run up to us or said "Hi Mama, I missed you", in fact, she is unable to hold her head up on her own nor use any words to communicate verbally. She only has only one approximated sign, "more", which she LOVES to use! We can only imagine the amazing stories in her head. And we've never had the opportunity to wish for a moment of peace and quiet.

We have relied on her amazing smiles to know she is happy, her whimpers to know she is sad or in pain, her whines to know she is irritated with something. It has been amazing to connect with her on such a level that we almost feel a bit psychic at times! It has also broke our hearts when we can not figure out what is wrong with her when she is crying. We have always been of the belief that every milestone is a miracle and we are eager for the next milestone in her life.

Please help us in reaching Addison's next milestone - communication!

We will be raising money to gift Addison with an iPad and available applications (such as ProLoQuo 2) to be used as a communication device.

I am so excited for this next chapter in Addison's life and look forward to your continued support.

One day Addison will have words using an iPad and we can not wait for the day she can 'say' "I LOVE YOU!"

Supporters: Please continue to share our page with your friends and family.

Thank you,
The Gile Family
