We have been in Seattle for two days of therapy appointments. We haven’t tried back-to-back appointments before, but when I thought about traveling over and back two weeks in a row, it was more than I could handle. I suggested we try two appointments in one week.
I don’t know yet if we’ll see more benefit from doing five hours of therapy in one week, but I felt that it was productive. We worked on issues one day and then followed up the next on the same topics. We talked a lot about the school year, which begins on Monday. Most importantly, we made a food plan with Dimples that she is going to follow for the first month of school. I’ll share some details later.
We are staying at my friend Kathleen’s house and tonight two other families joined us for dinner. Between us we had lots of kids including my two Ethiopian daughters, Kathleen’s two Kenyan sons and one friend from India, Neely’s Ethiopian daughter, and Jodie’s South African son. There was also a nice mix of my friends’ kids by birth, so we were a colorful and dynamic group. I loved it…although the noise level was unbelievable with so many boys in one room playing Wii!
I’ll be home late Thursday and look forward to posting the answers to this week’s Tuesday Topic on Friday; the comments are rolling in. Please be sure to add your thoughts — we want to hear from you on the topic of Working Parents and Adoption.
See you all soon!
