Monday September 9, 2013 will always be remembered as the day that Hobey met his new family. This was the first of many interactions that will prepare Hobey for placement over the next seven months.
Our journey began when we met his boy, Luke, at Communication Innovations for a therapy session. In the lobby, we had brief introductions and Luke, smiling from ear to ear, saying "dog". Hobey tried to be good/calm, offering an occasional "kiss".
During the session, Luke wanted to show Hobey everything, while we worked on being still and quiet. The first thing Luke scrolled to on his iPad was a photo of a dog.
Later while drawing and tracing, he asked for Hobey's paw to trace it.
