ZT's Lastest update

Dear Friends,

We hope this note finds you doing well, and that you enjoy reading this month's update.

Terry is 6 Years 10 Months Old.

Terry’s foster mom wrote this update:

Terry is now able to read many words and characters. His older foster sister bought him a poster with animals and words. She bought it in order to help him learn more about animals and, at the same time, teach him some new words. However, as she began to point at each animal and word, she was shocked to find out that he already knew every animal and word! She said, “Wow Terry! You know all the words already!” He said, “You are so silly! I didn’t really know all the words but just guessed that the words were the names of the pictures you pointed to! We all laughed! Then his sister covered up the pictures and pointed to only the words, but then it was obvious he didn’t know them. His sister then began to teach him how to read each word. He is a quick learner and soon could read them all. After learning all the words himself, Terry brought his friends over and taught each of them the words. We may have a future teacher on our hands!

If you ever have any questions, please let us know. Thank you for your continued support.

ZT's July update

Terry's foster mom wrote this update:

Now that summer is here, there are a lot of good fruit in plentiful supply. Terry loves to eat watermelon. But every time he eats watermelon, he ends up with a full shirt of watermelon juice and then his mother has to wash his clothes. Every time he sees his mother washing his clothes and how hard she works he says, “I wont eat watermelon anymore.” His mother said, "You can still eat watermelon, just try not to get it all over yourself." Then Terry thought for a long time and finally said, "Next time I eat watermelon, I’m going to lean over forward so the juice goes on the ground and not on me!" Then he said, "Mom you won't have to work so hard, I know how to eat watermelon now!" He is such a delightful and thoughtful boy!
