Therapy was tough for kiddo, but also very productive
Turns out she recently remembered seeing her birth mom cutting and attempting suicide when she was a toddler.
It also turns out that her birth mom used to steal her food from her. After her bmom ate, she'd take whatever was left on the kids plates. No surprise they both eat super fast now and have food issues.
Now it makes even more sense why our kid gets so stressed at dinner time if anybody gets leftovers, if somebodys plate has more on it, if somebody gets the first bite, if somebody gets the last bite, etc.
She's stealing food in the night to make sure nobody steals it from her first.
My heart breaks for my baby, to remember these things after so many years and to have experienced these things in her lil life.
