Zoloft day 1, Eliza...all I can say is wow. I met a new daughter today. A daughter who looked us all in the eye. A daughter who was smiling. A daughter who was participating in jump rope along with her sister. A daughter who didn't try to constantly run off from us. A daughter who was actually sitting with us at my friend's patio, drinking water from a cup and being present. A daughter who actually got into my friend Kim's car and happily sat there looking around to see where we were going instead of screaming and having a panic attack over getting into a stranger's car like she has in the past. A daughter who needed only 1 prompt from me to follow an instruction. A daughter who was trying to verbalize responses back to me again. Wow. I didn't get to this decision easily or lightly. I prayed a lot about putting my 4 year old on this medication. Now, I pray this very low dose (1/2 ml) continues to help her.
