Hit-and-Run Survivor Tries to Write her Name, Family Says
Emily Bowman, a 19-year-old Kennesaw student, is recovering from injuries she received during a hit-and-run accident on Oconee Street on Feb. 16.
Since her first day at Atlanta's Shepherd Center on March 13, Emily Bowman has experienced non-stop therapy, according to the Facebook page Bows for Bowman.
On Thursday, one poster says, Emily tried to write her name:
Emily's doctor gave Emily a dry erase board and marker to see what she would do with it. Her mom told me that at first she wrote the number three, this took everyone by surprise. Following the three Emily wrote the letter m followed by an i. As soon as Emily's mom saw this she knew her daughter was trying to write her name and she was filled with joy!! This is the picture of Emily's handwriting. Keep praying!!!! Step by step prayers are being answered.
