Another success for Decca

Performing "Oh No" his own composition

Decca had another success this weekend, and I am so proud of him. He participated in a recital in front of  a hundred people, most of them strangers. This is a huge accomplishment for him as a year ago he was only talking to a handful of people. He would have never had the strength to do this. Music however seems to speak directly to him, and he has found his passion. He plays the piano almost all day (it actually starts to drive the twins crazy after a while LOL), and he was determined to do this recital.


Humming "Factory Chop"



It was hard for him especially when he hummed another song he wrote “Factory Chop”. He turned red and for a brief moment I thought he might start crying while he was up there at the mic, but he got to the end. He then did one more song at the piano before running back to me. He forgot to bow, but I reminded him, and he went back up with a smile on his face while everyone clapped.

We have been so blessed to find the piano teacher that works with Decca. Special need kids are her passion, and although Decca has never muttered a single word to her she has been able to work with him. I am very thankful for her, as I am sure all the parents at the recital were. There were blind students, down syndrome students, and students with turrets all performing at the concert. They were all wonderful, and I was so happy to be there to see them all.


The twins and a friend were there supporting Decca.

  1. I think he must have enjoyed his success as much as you did! He looks so serious but so happy.
