    A fun little update SC B

    We are about halfway through level B with our almost 7 year old son whom we adopted a little over a year ago now. His speech is really impacted by his cerebral palsy and of course by having to learn an entire new language. He was not sent to school in his orphanage; in fact, he was never even outside to play. He spent almost 6 years in a hallway. Needless to say, his development has been very delayed, BUT, with consistent work he is making so much progress! We loved level A, and level B is also a delight for us. I have always read the Bible to him in faith that he will understand and accept God’s love and Jesus’ sacrifice for him, even if he can’t express it yet. But yesterday in our school time, before his older sister read him the Bible story for the day, he told his sister (in his very sweet communication style!) what the story the day before had been! He’s understanding and growing!

    Honestly, for me, I often feel discouraged in this process. Both of my kids in SC levels have very real struggles and it’s scary and hard most days. I find it helpful to record personally our progress, even if it’s baby steps. I also really appreciate all of you moms here and your encouragement and steadfast work. I am praying this morning that God would give us perseverance, patience and peace as we continue to teach our precious kids.

        That IS a fun little update! We love A and B for oral language.

        Your son endured such hardship in his early years, but trust that you are giving him much to help him despite those years!

        It is scary and hard, just as you say, but I love your plan of recording progress and sheer delight. That will make quite a journal one day.
