Birthparents..............


Dakotah has been looking at pictures of his birth parents, R and W since he was born...we have pictures in his room, in the kitchen, and in his photo book. Once in awhile he wants to get the picture down that is in his room and look at it ....he stares intensely at it and puts it back. He has been talking a lot lately about "his daddy".....yesterday, he was talking about his "daddy" and Mima asked him if he wanted to see a picture of his birth dad and he said YES....she showed him the picture of R and W holding him on entrustment day July 26th, 2006 ...she said their names and told him that the little baby was him...he seems that he is really starting to "get" it...it's ...it's intense and it's awesome.....this little 2 1/2 year old boy will continue to learn his story, he will know his story and he will know that we love and admire his birthparents SO much..I want him to know who they are, who his birth brother is....if not only in face but in spirit but from our stories..... I hope we do it the right way!!!!

The fact that he felt comfortable enough to talk about them and ask to see a picture of his birthdad means you are so on the right track :O) Wishing all of us adoptive parents wisdom to choose and speak the right words often for our little ones. We miss you!

You guys will do it just right because you know D the best and will know just what to say and when. And if you don't know the answer, I bet you'll tell him so. Much love!
