For kids first out of the orphanage, everything is different. Even breakfast. Notice all the scrambled eggs left on plates and apple juice in cups? Look closer and Logan forgot to take his meds. Yes, have to watch him just like the boys at home. Point is, everything is new. Summer doesn't look too pleased w/ this meal. now, she asks for seconds for scrambled eggs.
Even Reni can not smile all the time at first. No, those are NOT her clothes but Summer's clothes. though the 4T's are big on Summer, they are definitely too small for Reni. They could not understand that there was a limited selection w/ travel so tried to raid each other's suitcases. Even clothes are a source of sadness b/c the smell of their old clothes is gone.
Sorry she's in her diaper. Just wanted to capture her look. She couldn't even find it in her to smile. Remember this please. In a few posts, you'll see a completely different person in there. It will be amazing. However, you must see this first. This sadness of the kids. It's a shared sadness they all have. All my kids had it. It is that sense of loss of everything familiar to them.
And the walls, come crumbling down. And the walls, come crumbling down.
The tears continued for quite some time. This is a very good, good thing. It may not seem like it at the time, but it is. It is a way for younger children to express their grief and sense of loss. She had to share it with someone finally.
Warren, trying to talk to her and comfort her.
