Hi TOk moms!  I don't write very often but I am a frequent lurker :-)  This week our youngest, Lia, was evaluated by the Help Me Grow program in our area and she is almost completely on par with her AA friends!  Lia was 13 weeks early weighing in at 2lb 2 oz and had pretty extensive brain bleeds on both sides of her brain so they have watched her very closely.  Her brain damage is pretty evident on her u/s evals, so we are very grateful that she isn't showing major issues, praise God!  She will be doing play therapy group once a week to help her stay on track.  With Lia we are enjoying the little things so much more, since every little acomplishment is a huge victory.  It is a reminder to me that I need to slow down and just enjoy our children more, and thank God for his provision.  Prayers and God's grace are all that have gotten our family though the last 7 mths.  Lia's therapists all say that our TOK family is part of the reason Lia is doing so well.  With so many people to talk to and play with Lia is getting a lot of verbal stimulation and play time :-) 


Congrats to all the TOK mommies that are expecting again!

Hi Jennifer!

I am glad that Lia is doing so well. I definitely think her therapist is correct. I knew a family with 3 children, and they 3rd was born early with many many issues. The doctors said he'd never walk or talk, but his older brother and sister talked to him all the time and taught him to walk and talk. Kids have a way of helping kids while making it seem fun. I am sure your Lia will grow and thrive with her therapy and her siblings help.

Hugs,

good to hear from you Jennifer and how wonderful to hear Lia is doing so well. I agree with the tok family setting her up for success. I just always think about the wonderful support system we are growing with our tok families.
