These adopted children, not only have they gone through so much in their short lives here on earth, but the last few days before they meet their Forever Families is probably the toughest! If the child has been with a foster family almost since they were abandoned then a day or two before they are placed with their Forever Family the foster family takes them back to the orphanage to spend the night. The next day they are taken into a room to meet their adopted families - a room they've never seen before, filled with people who look not too much like them, and who do not sound like anything they've heard. Can you imagine what is going through that child's head? And then all the people who do look somewhat familiar leave them there with these strangers. The adopted children go through a grieving process and it is a traumatic experience to be a part of.
But by all means, let's go get a massage! It's only $10! I'll be gone for an hour and a half, I promise, she won't even know I'm gone. You'll be fine, brand new daddy!
By the way, I did not leave a comment on this person's blog. I refrained.
