    kt & wm had their first visit together since the holidays this afternoon.

    We went out to group home with PCA in tow for kt. husband & I visited with foster mum & dad while the tweedles played games together. wm was very appropriate with kt, as was kt toward wm. We walked to the park but got caught in a thunder storm. That was good in one way in that kt & wm need a more "contained" setting for visiting.

    When kt & wm started to whine & argue with one another, foster mum reminded wm that he was "the host" of this visit. She also let kt & wm know that they needed to compromise on what game they would play next. PCA stayed in the background & only stepped in when kt was showing signs of agitation.

    The visit lasted an hour!!! :thumbsup:

    Our next visit will be in a month - by that time, it will be warm enough to have a picnic (hopefully). In the meantime, there will be a couple of kt/wm therapeutic appts with Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) workers.

    Whew....that's done - first big visit since kt's transitioned home from Residential Treatment Center (RTC).

    Having said all that clinical stuff, I enjoyed sitting back & watching my children play together. :warrior: :smile:

    Good news. I'm hoping they can one day develop a bond that goes beyond just being born at the same time and suffering together. The more good memories they have of each other, the more they have to build on.

    It really was nice to have the entire family together again - it had been so long. I'm hoping this is the start of something good.

    Thanks ladies.
