10:41 am
did her best but improvement was slow and due to her limited communication skills, she was lonely most of the time. but hannah was almost always pleasant and only wanted hugs from other students. she simply kept coming and never gave up, loving to move and dance. at the studio, seniors in high school get to perform a senior solo at the end of the year. it came to robin's attention that although hannah was now 22, she had persevered and earned her high school diploma. she wanted to do a solo but her mother thought she couldn't since she was still a rather unskilled dancer. but robin would not take no for an answer. robin made her costume, choreographed her solo and worked extra time into her schedule to assist hannah in learning it to the best of her ability. hannah did her solo at the demonstration and brought the house down. i have never been so proud of my most amazing wife and the love that she pours into her students. >> oh, my god. >> i know. i know.
