After the rain - Part II


If anyone is wondering how siblings deal with adoption
and what it looks like with their new brother or sister, 
if they feel displaced or dethroned, 
if there is resentment and anger, 
I would tell them that there absolutely is a transition period.  And it ain't all easy.  

And then this happens...

Jude age 6 (home 5 years) and Mimi age almost 4 (home 2 years) 
THIS is what it looks like.
For reals.

  1. I needed this tonight. Thank you for the reminder of what's to come for my boys. We are deep in the "transition period".

    1. Oh Melissa, my prayer is going out for you tonight. Much about adoption is SO hard. Golly much about parenting is so hard even without the adoption. Contact me if you'd like to talk to someone who has been there.
