Rough Few Days
I feel like I'm in China all over again, but with Blossom this time. She's been going through a new phase. She is still making progress in a lot of areas, but she truly doesn't understand what a mother is or what a mother does and why she needs one. Right when I think she's starting to get it, I can see that I'm back at square one. I keep telling myself that we're only at the one month mark and that helps. I've also found out that her SWI has some really terrible things going on.
Fortunately, I know that this, too, will pass. I just wish I could hit fast forward and get to that point. Today, Blossom figured out that I was helping her by buying her a pair of scissors for her left hand because she's left handed. I said, "Yes, I am helping you." She asked why. I said I was her mom and that I love her. She then pointed out that I do the same with my other two daughters. I again said yes, that all three are my daughters.
Please pray that she gets it soon. She needs peace and a feeling of belonging so desperately!
