So I’ve been wondering lately…………………………….How do I tell my girls that even though they were removed from their birth mothers care along with all their other siblings that have remained in foster care, she has been allowed to keep her new baby.
Will they be jealous? Will they think this is a sign that she can now do the ‘mommy job’ and they can go back to her? Will they be worried for the new baby’s safety? Will they even want to know about the new baby? Will they feel they were some how not good enough for her to keep safe? Will they be happy? Will they be sad? Will they understand?
So many questions and so many possible out comes, how will I ever be sure that they’re ready to know?!
