Healthy

Jayden had his six month well visit with the pediatrician last night.

I found myself getting emotional while the doctor talked to us about how Jayden is doing. She was talking about how healthy and strong he is and how he's hitting all his milestones early.

I won't go into detail on why, but we went into this adoption fully prepared for possible health problems, delays, or special needs. I worried at every appointment. I worried when he was slow to put on weight. I worried that they were watching how his head was growing. I worried about everything.

To then go to our six month appointment and have our doctor go on and on about how well he is doing made me get tears in my eyes.

This little tiny person has overcome so much and is doing so well. It's amazing.

I am so thankful.

  3. I totally understand what a relief it is to have the doctor pronounce them healthy. I also went into Mea's adoption prepared to expect for delays, and problems.

    I still sometimes hold my breath when we go in for check up's just because I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Then I look at that crazy smart girl, and just shake my head...
