wow that is so awesome! I should let you know that you were absolutely write (if you where who I talked to in the very beginning asking about it all). It TRULY help her fine motor development. She never had to do ANY of that in PT. She knew how to do everything when it came to writing, drawing, using spoons, pencils, the works. I thought it was awesome either way but when something fun can make such a huge difference in development it is exciting. I guarantee that the cost of the kindle was no where near what it would have cost to have physical therapy to teach her and strengthen those skills. Not to mention it definitely increased bonding with all three of the kids, which is something you always want as a parent. I love the page, back you guys 100%, and have told everyone about you all. Thank you again, you have no idea how much of a difference you made with something I would never have been able to get them.
