Our sweet James had no language at all when he came into care 4 months ago. He communicated with grunts and gestures. We know that this lack of language is due to severe neglect. The great news is that after only 4 months, this little boy is now attempting to talk ALL DAY LONG! Many of his words can be understood, but most require interpretation by his foster mom. James is smart and understands everything- he just needs help closing the gap on his expressive language. Despite his communication difficulties, James is doing great socially in his preschool class. He is loved by everyone who meets him!
