This morning, one of J’s teachers brought him back to us, and helped us all do some adjusting to each other. J says he really does want to be adopted, and we believe that at least part of him does. The other part is grieving for all the things he’s going to miss–and is missing already. We know we can’t replace those things, but hope that he’ll eventually find that being part of a family is a good thing too.
During the big long meeting, B and K entertained themselves by turning into a pillow sandwich, and we also had some fun tossing around a beach ball (even J joined in for a bit.) In general, things have been going a bit better today than they were before yesterday, and we hope that we’ll be able to have more fun moments that might make J’s transition easier.
