i don’t want to

How clearly can a child express their desire to NOT do something? Today Jeremiah had a visit with his bio dad. During the time with him, Jeremiah sat in the same place for 45 minutes! He wasn’t sitting near T (his bio dad). T did offer Jeremiah some Cheerios. Jeremiah got up, walked over to T, took a few Cheerios, threw them in a bucket and went back to his spot and sat down for the remainder of the visit. Unbelievable!!!
Several Worker’s were observing the visit today, and when Jeremiah went out to see Justin (my husband) afterwards he was playing with Justin’s hat. It was great for the Workers to see this interaction.
Dorothy, the CASA worker, said that watching these visits is painful.
Can’t wait until this is over!!!
