kt has been deep in thought about bio family & her life's history over the past few months; especially since the incident that led her to home school. Saying that a week or so ago she decided that she'd had it with her bio history. She took her life book apart & burnt all the pictures & stories she no longer wanted or needed. It took her a good 3 hours with in home therapist to go through this book, discuss the why's & wherefores of not holding onto her past, what she wanted to keep & her reasoning behind burning this information. After the "burn" session I had makings for s'mores if she felt like it or tissues; kt used some of both. I'm proud of her choices to let go of a horrendous history - to move forward.
