It’s been ages since we’ve done a Tuesday Topic! This morning I have an early appointment in Spokane with an ENT for the chronic sinus infections that have been making my life somewhat miserable. It’s been months and months of feeling crummy; I’m ready to feel better.
This question was sent to me via my One Thankful Mom Facebook page, which you can “Like” by clicking on the button in my sidebar. I love it when people “Like” my page and I actually try to post things on it in addition to my blog posts.
This is the question:
My husband and I have been foster parents for 3 yrs and are adopting a 3 yr old boy who we have had for 4 months. He was homeless the first 2 yrs of his life, with his father. No mom. My husband and I both work part-time, but he is home more than me. Our son has latched onto him but has really rejected me for the most part. I am seeing little glimpses of hope but for the most part he avoids me and dismisses me or angrily says “I not talk to you” or “I not look at you!” We have had many different children with different disabilities/backgrounds/ages, but never this situation. Any tips? Thank you!
Let’s offer some suggestions to help this mom with her son. You may think that your idea isn’t good enough, but trust me, it could be just what she needs to hear. Leave a comment – it will encourage her. I don’t have time to share my thoughts right now, but I will later when I’m home.
Encourage one another,
