We had really been counting down the days till Friday when A and U were planned to move on. But now this morning I've heard that their mum has revoked the order they were under so they have to be moved by Thursday lunchtime.
I have to pack their stuff as they sleep tonight and tell them they are leaving first thing tomorrow morning.
Suddenly these boys don't seem such monsters anymore - they still rage and tantrum and won't sleep but we know it's because they are damaged little children, hard work for us but the hurt little children bit matters more. And so we hope and pray that the family member they move to live with can also see them as such and continue to work through the lack of routine and temper tantrums so the "little children" bit can shine through.
God bless you A and U.
Which is more difficult?
