Guys I need a big hug! For realz. I sat down to talk to my 9-yr-old last night about something totally unrelated (at least I thought), and it ended up that the thing that is bugging his is that he feels like he doesn't know people here, like he doesn't really have friends, he doesn't belong. He hugged me and burried his head and cried... he misses Michigan, misses his friends, his school, his coaches, and on and on. He said, sometimes I just wish we could go back to how things used to be. I miss it. But I guess it will get better here if I just wait. I hope it get's better soon. Uggh! He 'bout killed me. I just cried... especially at the thought of potentially having to move the kids again in the next year or two. I DON'T want to have to put him through this again... I"m worried that at some point he will just shut down and stop making friends so he doesn't have to lose them. This sucks. Please send hugs for me and prayers for him. I wish I knew what to do.
