An Open Letter
by David Ozab
To the anonymous donor who gave $60 to Team Anna for our 2012 Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech:
I want to say “thank you.” I know the chances of you reading this post are very small—perhaps infinitesimal—but on the slight chance you see a link to this post, I want to tell you a bit about the girl you’re supporting and the many kids like her.
Anna is an amazing girl. I know I’m biased since I’m her dad, but she really is. She is six-and-a-half and she just started first grade: she loves to read, to swim, and to perform for anyone who’ll watch, or when she’s alone in front of a mirror. She wants to be an actress and I think she’ll be a good one: we’re looking into classes for next spring.
But to act she has to be understood and that’s a challenge for her . . .
