Michelle is finally getting top teeth! I am not sure if I will recognize her when she finally has top teeth. I am not sure when she lost them but I do know that she had them pulled. She was in so many other homes it is hard for me to know when they were pulled.
The delay in completing the adoption is very much noticed by Michelle. Every time a worker comes to the house Emma runs off to play. Michelle does not. She sits and listens to everything we have to say. I know that she has learned to do this in the past because of so many moves. She doesn't want to be caught unaware. There is still a part of her that is afraid of being moved, she admits it.
We discussed the blotched case and the delay. I discussed this with her as soon as I found out so it wasn't new to her. She wants and needs to be informed of her case. After the social worker left Michelle asked me again what it all meant. Why was there a delay. I told her that they didn't do the TPR right the first time so they have to do it again.
Her response, "I am mad." Yea, me too.
