I couldn't have been more wrong. This guy wants to sit, crawl and play. He "talks" up a storm and interacts with us. He hates his bath and "scolds" us after we give him one. He kicks, he raises up, he rolls, he lies on his stomach and tries to scoot. He can sit unattended if we put him in the position. He is so proud of himself and we are proud of him.
We are thinking a lot these days about what his future will be. In many ways, it is truly out of our hands. He is our foster son, not our adopted son. We want the best for him but have no power to make that happen. His future may be in his home country, with a loving long term foster family. It may be with a forever family. It may be in an institutional setting. We don't know. We know what we hope and pray for our little guy.
Sure, he can sit. That's a major thing. But he can also love and is easy to love. That's the most important thing.
