As some of you may know, my kids were born early – very early. I don’t talk about it much because I choose to not let it define them or me. That said there are issues that come with prematurity that we dealt with and we sometimes dealt with for a long time.
Most of the issues were physical and at times very scary, but we went through all the hoops and experienced all the fears that most parents of preemies encounter. Recently I agreed to let me kids be evaluated by a variety of child development experts for medical follow-up and I am over joyed by the results.
After several weeks of testing, they believe my kids are bright and social and that they will thrive in school. They also said that my son Samuel’s IQ is well above his age and they think he’ll be an exceptional student. Today is a proud day indeed!
