For a moment I wondered if I really wanted to know all the answers- sometimes maybe, it's good to live with possibilities not answers.
The Dr. was excellent. Both girls were tested, it was pretty painless (they were glad there were no shots)!
Basically the girls currently have low IQs and language delays. As we know IQs can change and language can be learned! It is most likely due to their previous environmental issues - malnutrition, neglect and no prenatal care.
So, now that we have this information what do we do?
Exactly what we have been doing. The girls are making forward progress in everything- so keep doing it.
They have been home 8 months. Give them more time to learn the necessary skills.
We both feel comfortable that the girls will improve when we return to the Doctor 6 months from now.
We will check into the school district for next year regarding special services BUT we will not stop homeschooling. We believe they are way better off with homeschooling. We may do a few hours a day of special services- maybe or maybe not, we will see?
We have two beautiful daughters that love having a forever family, they love to be loved and valued, they love to learn even if it is at a slower pace, they are happy and always skipping around the house.
We are blessed to have them in our family! They are a precious gift from God!! We are so thankful they are ours!
This has been a journey that I never expected to be on. This is one journey that was planned by HIM! God is calling the shots and we go where he leads us! Wonder where he is going to take us next!?!
