That was 2014.
The letter was addressed to "kiddo PRIOR last name". We sent a letter that gifts and letters weren't necessary, but that if they felt the need to send them, to please NOT use their last name.
Over 3 years later before we heard from them again. Last week we received a letter (sent thru DSS).
The letter was addressed to "Kiddo RANDOM last name". I thought I'd die.
Too funny. Kiddo thought so too.
They were kind enough to send her pics of their dog (hers previously) finally. They also sent a pic of themselves. She took the dog pictures and asked if she could cut their picture to pieces. I'm guessing she's not ready to deal with them.
This week we heard from bio aunt.
Kiddos biological mom is in ICU, stroke and blood clot on the brain.
We let her know what was up.
She was very concerned about that happening to her one day. We had a good talk about genetics and environment and how lives are a mix of both. Pretty sure at least part of the concern was for the 1st mom, although she'll never admit it.
I know she means it when she says she has no desire to see her, but I also know that she cares about her.
Hopefully all this will not turn her too wonky.
