Regression is Normal
Regression during a time of moving, a new sibling's arrival or any other major life-changing event is perfectly normal for ALL children, but especially adopted children.
I've always been open and honest on my blog. The reason I've chosen to be open on this matter is because it's a very common issue. I'm not the first family to move or to provide my children with siblings and I'm not the first to do both very close together. Of all the people on this earth, I love my children the most and have their best interest at heart. I know my children best and know what is best for them and for my family. Also realize, that before any adoption is approved by an agency, a social worker must do a homestudy and give approval, too. So, not only do I have the knowledge that my decisions are in the best interest of my children and family over all, but I have the official stamp of approval of a licensed social worker (who is an advocate for the children), a licensed family counsellor, a great adoption agency, and the approval of CCCWA. That's a whole lot of support!
