The Netherlands, December 2000
UPDATE – November 2003
Ruard is doing well, he is almost 3 years old now. He tries to walk holding the hand of one of his parents. He says a few words like granny, mam and daddy. At school he is one of the bandits.
UPDATE – December 2004
Here are some notes from Holland. Ruard is almost four (29 -12- 2000) now, he walks freely around, without any help. He communicates with us by pointing and he uses a few little words. He eats everything, even nuts and loves to listen to music. His favourite playing toy is\are turning the wheels of a toy car.
Ruard’s father, Jan-Anne Graafstra.
