I was sitting in church this morning when a family sat in front of us. As the children sat down I thought that I recognized the children. Suddenly it dawned on me that I was looking at the half siblings of Little Man. Their mom is Little Man's mom. She has had her parental rights terminated and they live with their father.
I have talked with their grandmother. Actually she has been to our house. She had contemplated trying to get Little Man at one point so that the siblings could have contact. I had told Little Man's aunt (who visits with him at our house) that we didn't have a problem with the children having contact. It is because of this grandmother that I know that Little Man's mom did drugs and drank the entire time she was pregnant. Explained why my little man had such a hard time sleeping and was so fussy when he came home. I suspected, it was confirmed, he was a drug baby.
I digress, the children know that Little Man exists but their dad wasn't ready to meet. I knew he was sitting right in front of me but he had no clue who we were.
So what do you do in that situation?
