I have known Mattie Lincoln every since beautiful Niema was a baby. The joy Niema brought to her heart is indescribable. Mattie often shared with me how much she wanted Niema to be just like any other ordinary child and I would often tell her, be patient, she will get there. Mattie sacrificed letting her full time job go in order to stay home, teach, nurture and care for Niema. Within months Niema was talking and even calling me "Rory" and singing, doing things she had never done before!!! Mattie ewes estactic over Niemas progress of an austitic child. Through the awesome work of teachers and Mattie herself, Niema has began school where she loves to learn and is now living like any ordinary child would. Without the many sacrifices Mattie made, Niema would not be this far. It is a privilege to have an outstanding mother to want to help as many austitic families and this organization will always have our support. Mattie Lincoln is an amazing woman with a heart of live and compassion. And to you Niema, we are proud of you!!!
