My child is only making baby sounds right now but I must have this in my parenting tool box because he will surely talk. Here is a good read on how parents can handle "talking back". Perhaps we should call it "feedback" : My husband and I were working on a project around the…
From parental termination to the celebration of adoption you will cry, laugh, hurt, and cry some more. It will crush your heart to see the pain of a mother walking away while simultaneously planting love as you step in. Don’t allow yourself to judge anyone or any situation.
