Little man was placed a year ago and has always refused anything nurturing. He stopped letting us feed him 2 weeks into placement, stopped being compliant to holding etc. Just in the last 2 weeks he has finally allowed us to cuddle him. He lays in my arms while I sing a silly song to him, it's always on his terms but that's okay. He will just keep saying 'ada' - again - and letting me hold him, rock him and sing. It brings tears to my eyes, I wish, I so wish I'd been able to do that when he was a new born.
oh poohbear that's wonderful news, how lovely...you have obviously done an amazing job over the last year. I really do know how you feel..those moments are so precious and they just keep you going when things get tough.
