7 days and counting...

Just a couple of quick thoughts...

What do you say when you meet your new 2 year old sons for the first time?

If you had 7 days to spend with your new 2 year old sons, what would you do?

What do you say when you leave your 2 year old sons, and how do you make him secure that you will return 'someday' to pick him up and take him home?

Why does adoption take so stinking long, and cost so stinking much?

Just some thoughts going through my head.

Why did I think they were older than 2? I need to pay better attention. I think that you should bring them each a teddy bear. It sounds silly but can act as a reminder and a sort of transitional object for each of the boys. They probably won't really understand what it means to have a new mommy and daddy but if you just focus on getting to know them and building trust you'll be fine. Hope this helps. Love you!

We recently met our then 5- and 9- month old sons in Haiti. What I wish I had done was take a copy of the Haitian Creole version of "Simple Language for Adoptive Families" because now that I own it I have found it says everything I would have wanted to say to them ... I am Mommy, I love you, You are beautiful, You are precious ... and the list goes on and on ...
