  I smiled to encourage him to inch forward. He took one more step. I held my breath and when nothing happened, I let it out. I tried to talk to him one more time. I opened my mouth and called his name. He looked at me with no comprehension. He knew I tried to speak but didn’t understand.

  He took another step forward.

  I said his name again. He lifted his eyebrows in question. I decided to stop speaking and concentrated on our progress.

  Another step forward.

  He took another step forward.

  He smiled. If we would have reached out our hands, we would have touched.
