DCFS has been very clear. He misses 2 consecutive months and the visits will stop altogether.
Simon came to me at bedtime and told me that he was ready to tell me why he looked sad earlier when I asked him what was wrong. He said he was worried about his visit with his Dad, that it wouldn't take place. I of course had to tell him that there would not be a visit.
His big brown eyes welled up with fat tears that rolled down his cherub-like cheeks. He tried so hard to hold it in. I scooped him up into my lap and rocked him for a long while. In the end, I was able to get him to giggle and give him extra hugs.
When I told Sarah she just kind of blinked at me and shrugged.
Four years and eight kids and never have two of them reacted the same way to any one event!
