Dear Concerned Mom
Your child should see an ENT to evaluate possible causes for her speech delay, but children tend to talk in their own good time. Regarding large adenoids, this is not hereditary, but allergies are, and this may contribute to enlarged adenoids.
You may make an appointment with an ENT, just make sure your medical aid does not require a referral. Discuss this with your GP, otherwise go anyway, as she really needs an ENT examination.The runny nose and coughing are most likely from the allergies, just check that she is not asthmatic.
