|Teacher with Autistic Children Thanks Comfort Dog Shami for Changing Lives|
LCC recently received the following note from Kim Rothstein, the teacher who works with autistic children in the classroom where Comfort Dog Shami regularly visits.
Ephesians 3:20 "Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."
"This verse sums up what Shami has been able to do with my students, and how God works his miracles every day. If we trust and follow him we will sure accomplish many things. Shami has come to visit my classroom twice now. I have six students in a self-contained Autism classroom. Out of the six, four of them are considered non-verbal. In the two times that Shami has come, we have seen small miracles. We have seen students who do not interact with adults or peers, interact with Shami. We have seen spontaneous language from students who do not speak regularly. There are no words to describe the impact that Shami has had on our students. Her calm, gentle, and loving manner enlightens our students and reaches them where we cannot. Shami has brought out the very best my students have to offer and more. God continues to work through Shami, and it brings such love and joy to my heart. We are so grateful for this opportunity God has provided for us."
