Buddy

Everybody loves the little Buddy. He completely takes the heart of those who spend a little time with him. He's getting cautious about going to other people, though. He is getting a little upset, or refusing to go to people whose arms he once threw himself into... He wants Mama!!! or the girls.

Everyone wants to know his story. I have struggled with the confidentiality thing. There is so much that is "OUR" story, but parts that are strictly "HIS" story that I find myself getting in a tangle when people ask direct questions. What I don't tell  can easily be gained elsewhere, because, small town that we live in, there are those who actually know more about the case than I do. Or at least they know more about his family (or know his family) and the current saga than the social worker and I know. . .

We can only pray that God will lead in this case. I must trust He holds these little boys in His great big loving hands.

Praying. Buddy's attachment to you is developmentally appropriate and necessary.

Haven't been commenting much but I am reading and praying.

But what happens to the other two siblings?

Okay, I don't mention the other siblings much because they are in Grandma's care. I don't have them and they are doing pretty well. The family being in shambles is hardest on them for sure.

I was not sure where they were...thanks for answering.

My extended family recently got sole custody of a boy as a parent had their TPR. He has two half siblings in foster care-he is the oldest, and the loss of those sibs makes me ache for him.
