This is the same judge that aided us with Mindi's adoption of Harris 2 years ago. It was nice to see her again- she is a great supporter of same sex adoptions.
Another great thing about today was that Stella and I went to Hanger (an orthodics and prosthetics company) to have her assessed for a potential helmet. Let me just tell all of you mothers out there- TRUST YOUR MOMMY GUT!
It turns out that little Stella is indeed within the range that would benefit from a helmet! Apparently, she has a 6mm deviation, which is considered mild- moderate deformation. Not that I am celebrating her crazy shaped head, but I am happy to hear that my concerns were real! She has a scan to prove it!!
We have an appointment in 2 weeks to have her helmet fitted. I am very excited to start (and finish) the treatment!
I want to send a shout-out thank you to Carey over at Finding Chaos. As many of you know, she also had the experience of fighting to be heard to get her (frickin' ADORABLE) child a helmet. Thanks for the support, and the reminder to trust my instinct. If you had not messaged me, I would not have called Hanger for a second opinion! Seriously!
