Hey Suzanne,
Haven't been on here for forever, but when I saw your name, I wanted to hear what was happening. WOW! I totally am still bawling from your post. Isn't it amazing??? What an overcomer little miss Hannah is! I bawled through little Jimmy's kindy award ceremony too ;) he was on the honor roll also after a rough start in pre-k ;) What a difference a good teacher can make - and what lucky Mommy's we are.

Another proud preemie momma moment...

Hannah had a tough beginning to school, and had to repeat kindergarten. She had barely made the age cutoff, and would not have even started that first year if she had been born on time, but we decided to go ahead and give it a try that first year, even though she was the youngest in the class. She had a hard time learning to read and had to repeat kindergarten. She had a wonderful teacher the second time around, and had a wonderful first grade teacher this year. I went to her awards ceremony Thursday, and the final award was the biggest and most prestigious award of the year. It was for the student who scored the highest percentage on their accelerated reader tests for the books they had read throughout the year. She said this student scored an average of 98% on her tests, which is not an easy feat. When she called out Hannah's name as the recipient of the award, I about fell out of my chair. The tears started to well up in my eyes and I could barely focus the camera. All of the words from the NICU doctor went through my head..."she has a brain bleed, which could cause retardation, cerebal palsy, learning disabilities, and her prematurity could cause blindness or deafness..." We told him we didn't care...she would be the same child to us and we would absolutely love her just the same. It's been a tough road these seven years including her recent diagnosis of seizures, but boy, if the NICU could see her now! From a kid who hated to read to the kid with the highest score on the reading tests - we are so proud! I just had to share!
