our pediatrician think her measurements and teeth make her about 11

Resolved Question:

I am adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. Most of the children in the orphanage are younger than she is. Observers think she is 12 or 13 but the international doctor as well as our pediatrician think her measurements and teeth make her about 11. Who's right?
