Making Progress !

Certain things are no longer on my to do list since the kiddos came home.We have been busy !

We have seen several doctors.We have had pretty positive news regarding their health status. Milana has already made it on the growth chart for both weight and head circumference. She is 2 and a half and is now 25 pounds. Two pounds in weight gain so far.Brock is still not on the charts but, is growing and is up to 26 pounds.Other then an ear infection and cold they have been doing really well. They have been really troopers in regards to getting blood work done. We have been very fortunate that the sweet gal at the lab is Russian and she speaks Russian to them and makes the experience less traumatic.Their language skills are also continuing to explode with words.Brock loves to say "OH MY GOODNESS" and Milana always says "BYE BYE CAR".She is a go go go type of little girl.
Besides medical stuff, we applied and received their social security cards. We also got our passports stuff done as well. Our little ones are now proud citizens of three different countries.
The next week or so we will see if they qualify for any speech or OT.I will try to push for it but, with budget cuts I do not know.
Our little ones are becoming so much part of our family and each day I think of the miracle that they actually made it home !!

If they qualify for ECI, they should bill your insurance. If insurance denies, you pay based on your income. It really isn't a large cost. Good luck! They are just adorable.
