Caleb has been back with his mom and her caregiver, Nancy, for five weeks now. We praise God for how well Caleb has adjusted and the way he has been so beautifully welcomed there.
With the guidance of a social worker, who has a lot of experience with foster care and reintegration, we have been doing our best to make sure Caleb knows we still love and care about him even though he is no longer a part of our daily lives. It is also important for him to understand that his new family situation is permanent and that we love his new family and want him to also. So far, it’s been going very well.
A few weeks ago, we were able to take Caleb and several of his new “siblings” to a fun center to spend time with the other Neema House babies. They had missed their “big brother” so much and were overjoyed to see him. We spent several hours playing hard and finished off the evening with pizza. We miss Caleb every day but are so thankful to still be a part of his life–he is such a rich part of ours! We look forward to more outings at neutral locations as he continues to adjust to his “new normal.”
