It has been a while since I posted about Faith, so I thought it would be good to share some recent photos. She is all of 17 years old now, and not the little girl that many of you may remember her.
Since it was Deepavali, and a public holiday yesterday, and we decided to take Faith out to town for a little outing. Her younger brother and younger sister all had their own teenage programmes, so it was just me, mommy, Auntie Marian and Faith.
It doesn’t take very much to make her happy. An MRT ride to Dhoby Ghaut, a little window shopping, a snack at Mos Burger, and then another train ride home.
Her autism didn't cause her to act up in the train or the mall, which was good. She did, however, have a very strong desire to enter stores with loud music playing (she would stand near the speakers for a bit, listening), and she would drag us to places where there were holes and repeat patterns on the wall.
She enjoyed squeezing the squeeze toys in a shop, so mommy let her play with those for a while.
She was all smiles today. And that made us smile too.
