Every day, Ashley’s shoes came untied. Multiple times. Ashley had never learned to tie her shoes. Kelly asked Ashley if she wanted to tie her own shoes. She did. So they started working together each day.
It was slow going. Some days were more frustrating than others. Nearly a year later, Ashley told Kelly she had a surprise. Then she tied her own shoes. She didn’t stop there. She untied Kelly’s shoes and tied them. Kelly cried. Ashley’s Mom cried. Ashley danced around the room. Shoes tied.
