Last night after I was finished rocking my Lil’Man and telling him his life story. I asked him did you like B, and D? (adoptive parents). He said “yes, they are nice”. I said oh that’s good. To which he replied “they are my adoptive family aren’t they?”
He’s too freaking smart! While he knew he would one day get adopted, we never mentioned them being his adoptive parents. I wanted to make sure everything was set in stone.
Does anyone have any tips/advice on how to help Lil’ Man transition. Every night I talk about his birth, his birth family, his other foster family, and us. Then I go on to tell him that one day soon he is going to get adopted and live with that family forever.
I usually end it by saying how much the hubby and I will miss him, but that he will remain in our hearts forever.
I think about how hard this transition is for me, I can’t even begin to understand how hard it is for my Lil’ Man. I hope we are doing the right thing. I hope this isn't something I am going to regret.
