School photo project
It's been a while since I have posted in here. Life is pretty good. After a bumpy first 6 months we settled into our new family life and all has been brilliant.
My dino boy is now 5 and started school in September. On Thursday he came home from school with his half term homework - to find photos of him as a baby, discuss what he was like and if possible to take measurements in of him as a baby to compare.
This is the first time I've got upset about not being a birth mum. It's felt like he's always been here so when something like this arrives it really does shake me. However it is not only me. We obviously have photos of him as a baby and we are in contact still with his foster parents so can answer a lot of questions. The problem is that whenever he looks at a photo of himself as a baby he gets upset although is still unable to verbalise why it makes him feel like that. His life story book is always available to him and he has looked at it recently.
I'm worried that he is going to get upset at school and to add to that he is very blasé about the whole adoption thing so will quite often spout out 'when I was a baby and I lived with my other mummy' which I'm worried will open him up to others in the class.
I'm not really sure how to handle the whole situation. Help!
