Notice her body language. We could not touch her. Not hold her, not kiss her, not touch her.
Even here, not comfortable. NOT potty trained at all despite us being told she was totally potty trained. Umm, no. She wasn't. Surprise.
One night, she finally ran to Warren.
Let's talk about what she CAN do now. Run, walk, eat (oh yeh, just fine), express herself, be sarcastic, cut (speech therapist said she is the best cutter she has!), has all gross and fine motor skills for her age, etc. Again, this list could go on forever. So, w/ NO OT and NO PT she got back on track and is on par w/ kids her age for tasks. Now, speech therapy she did end up needing. Summer has severe speech dyspraxia and ST told me that doesn't surprise her w/ the c-ACC. She is progressing though and that's what counts.
Now, some other tidbits. I will never forget the ride out of the orphanage. I was told that's the first car she rode in other than the one from Pleven that brought her there. Don't worry, she has no issues hopping in that van now. LOL. Buckles her carseat up and all. She learned to ride a bike, with training wheels. So many things to name that she's done.
Oh, one thing I will never ever ever forget was her sheer terror of water. I mean I've had kids nervous before but this was different. This was severe trauma of water. I even had them call the orphanage to find out how they bathed her. They said a bath. I did that, tried a shower, tried getting in w/ her. You name it, we tried it. We gave up and decided she could stink till we got home. Seriously, it sounded like we were skinning an animal alive. It was horrifying.
