Tigger is having a hard time adjusting to the emotional part of school this year. His school phobia is under control, his behavior is at an acceptable level, and he is doing his work. But it seems that even 8 kids in a room is a lot for him He came home today very upset that one boy from his class told another boy (a minor-difficult child from the gened class that they have recess with) that he couldn't be friends with Tigger anymore. Per Tigger, the gened boy who he has been friends with since 4th grade is now no longer his friend. That grew in his mind to having no friends, to having no family because we are just the people who adopted him and he doesn't even have real siblings (the other 3 were adopted as a sib group). He finally cried himself to sleep. My heart is so broken. My mind knows that all adopted kids go through this. Just like all non-adopted kids go through the phase where they wish they were adopted. But I hate seeing him in pain.
