AUTHOR: Matthew Scott Donnelly,

Leah Calvert‘s daughter, Ali, has had her fair share of struggles since birth. She got off to a slow start walking, experienced problems with her vision (she now wears prescription glasses), and, if you’ll remember, there was a time on "Teen Mom 2" when an appointment at the geneticist’s office terrified Leah that Ali would face developmental difficulties for the rest of her life. But the family had a lot to be thankful for this weekend when they learned that Aleeah’s twin sis is not only at the same cognitive level as her fellow 2-year-olds, but potentially well beyond it.

"[Ali] had a evaluation and scored beyond a 5-year-old’s level cognitively," Leah tweeted to the amazement and praise of her social media followers. "God makes the special ones smart as a tack," one replied among a sea of other congratulatory offerings. Those soon-to-be kindergarten classmates better mind their Ps and Qs–we very well could have a future valedictorian on our hands!
