First Doctor Visit




Our little Miss Ray of Sunshine is just perfect and I have a Dr report to prove it!! This is a huge praise Jesus for her sake! She was labeled psychomotor retardation at some point by someone in China.  And the thing is with orphans in China the label sticks. From what I understood the label can't be changed. This one label moved her from the healthy kid orphanage to one that dealt with mostly special needs. The "healthy" children have a chance of being adopted by people in China who were mostly likely unable to have a child of their own. The "special needs" children will spend their entire childhood in an orphanage and then they age out and live as a beggar on the street available to people who would prey on the less fortunate. UNLESS the special needs child is adopted by an international couple. Then they have a chance of experiencing family and all the joys and blessings that brings. 

There are many children mainly special needs (super mild-moderate) boys who need families to consider them worthy of a family to rescue them from their label and the fate it brings and to give them hope and a future.

We know our Caroline was slow to walk and from our best guess has low muscle tone which we all, the Doctor included, think she will make up with regular childhood play... You know the opportunity to run, jump, climb, swim, hike etc.  she might never be the fastest but then again she might she is pretty determined!!! 

We are grateful to the Lord for this diagnosis and can't wait to see what God has planned for her!
