I just got off the phone with the adoptive Mom. This visit is going well. Lil' Man is sleeping much better and has spent less time in time out.
He slapped the adoptive Mom in the face, and immediately started crying because he knew he had done something wrong.
The adoptive parents had a meeting with their case worker on Thursday. Their worker suggests that they not sign any papers until after Lil' Mans doctors apt at the FAS clinic.
The adoptive Mom agreed. She then said "the only thing that would stop us from adopting is if they tell us he is going to be a serial killer when he's older."
Lil' mans apt is over five weeks away. Is it normal for a transition to last 13 plus weeks? My gut is telling me no.
Does a long transition have negative effects?
If we keep him until mid April, he might as well stay until the end of the school year. The school year ends mid May.
Is it fair for Lil' man to miss school every Friday for the next five weeks? Will his case worker drive 4 hours there and back every Friday? Should we do visits every other weekend?
Keep in mind Lil' man is our first placement so that whole transition thing is new to us.
