A bonding moment

Kayla is away on a school field trip. They went on a camping overnight. Well, she jsut called me about a half hour ago to just talk and tell me about her day. She said she fell in the mud and then got stuck in an ant pit and almost called me to come get her but decided to tough it out. Okay, Kayla has never called me just to chat about anything. When she has talked to me on the phone before, she never says much, just tells me what she needs. This may not seem like much but this is huge for a girl who never likes to talk about anything in her life or her feelings whatsoever, especially to me. I think we just had a bonding moment.

That's awesome! How is the finalization on the adoption going? You sooo have to read "Three little words" a memoir on foster care. She tells her story from the beginning. Its a quick read - I can't put it down! You can borrow my copy if you want. The author struggled to attach to her mom when she was finally adopted at age 12. Even though her new mom did everything, she fought it and at this point in the book, only really attached quickly to the dad. I'm a chapter or two from the end. She's only 23 now, so it recounts a recent childhood growing up in the system.
