To the Doctors We Go

As I sat in the hospital clinic for three hours waiting to see a nurse, there were many different types of people around me.  I was in the clinic with one of my kids, Pearle, who was born extremely underweight.  Every month she is required to see the nurse to get vitamin tablets and to have her weight monitored.  Pearle is a petite young girl.  I never suspected that she was underweight. Due to complications from her birth, she has significant developmental delays.  She is about two and a half years old.  She has verbal delays and is not potty trained.  Many of the children at the home have similar difficulties due to the volatile nature of their short lives.  They have speech delays, milestone delays with motor skills and emotional immaturity.  The emotional impact of their situation takes a toll.

As I sat and waited for the nurse, I watched others in the room.  Cute children kept staring at me.  Here are some pictures: (None of these pictures are of my little Pearle)

This baby had the most adorable smile I have ever seen.

The doctor’s visit was long and tiresome, but Pearle is slowly gaining weight.  I was happy for some good news.

Until Next Time,

Stay Awesome.
