But my brain is full of jumbled bits.
D’s been here one month today. I still have not met a case worker. He may be here a long time. We’re really starting to like him which is good. I think some of what’s making it difficult to really settle is all the unknown. As in, it’s been a month and I know not one thing more than I did the night he arrived.
I understand that’s often the nature of this gig, but this is starting to feel like a little much. I’m thinking it’s about time to get into fight for this kid mode and start makin’ some calls.
In regards to parenting a toddler who screams, (Y’all, this kid screams. And I have witnesses) my mother gave me some excellent advice: “Darlin’, it won’t be hard forever. Either he’ll go home, or grow up.” Sometimes mama’s know just what to say to keep things in perspective.
