Cutie Got Evaluated


With all the issues in our 2 little ones' birthfamily it really worries me what their challenges may be. Today I took Cutie for a speech evaluation. When she started preschool in September she started stuttering and fluttering her eyelids when trying to speak. This has totally went away, but we still kept the appt. due to delayed speech. She is about a year behind with her speech, but the therapist was amazed with her language and ability to express herself. I mentioned some of my worries and I thank the Lord for the reassurance the therapist gave me. She did not see any markers of something serious right now. Thank you Lord for blessing my babies with healthy lives...looking at the other birthsiblings I know it could be very different.

Btw...about 2 weeks ago Foster Son was adopted by the family he moved in with after leaving our home...we are so happy for him.

I'm glad she's doing well. I'm also glad Foster Son found the right placement. My cousins went through a similar scenario with their foster kids (birthparents are another cousin and his girlfriend). My cousin said sending him back was the hardest thing she had ever done but it was absolutely necessary due to the issues- their home just wasn't the right home for him. He's aged out of the system now and is preparing to see his little sisters next month!

I didn't know your children were adopted or that you fostered. That is truly wonderful!

So glad to hear how wonderful everyone is doing!

That is fabulous news. Amazing what a good family, some love, and the right teachers and therapists can do in these kids lives. I know you are all blessed to have each other.

As you know, my youngest is adopted. I also have a great respect for people that foster. It must be sooooo hard to give them back. I didn't know that you did that too!

i had NO idea your cuties were adopted or that you were a foster parent! I think that is amazing and I have such respect for you!

I was adopted too...and I'm trying to find my birth partents...i didn't have the best situation growing up. I'm trying to see if I can find any info to locate my birth-mom or dad...it's hard though...30 years ago they did not keep much info...
