What a wonderful day today was! We got together with lots of our adoption/foster friends and we all took our kids out for a picnic in the park. We took 11 kids that didn’t know each other and were unlikely to have even noticed each other on a playground and we stuck them in a forest. Within minutes they were organising themselves, working together, sharing, laughing, smiling and building a den! These children have all had unimaginable lives, all endured neglect, rejection, uncertainty, they’ve had to learn how to survive and look after themselves, they have become the best of friends with ‘insecurity’ which means friendships and playing can be difficult for some of them! Today none of that mattered, today they were just kids, being kids, it was amazing to watch and lovely to see them all joining in, taking turns, looking out for each other and helping one another!
