2 months ago - Long story short - my sister (one that lives in DC) and BIL have these friends we will call M&S. Well M&S adopted 2 boys who are 7 and 11. They have been there for about 2 years. M&S can't bond and love the 11 yo who we will call J. They say he had issues and wasn't a good kid. They put him in a residential home for behavior kids. That home didn't feel he needed to be there. M&S never went and visited him and didn't even go see him on Easter. M&S wanted to unadopt J and put him back into the foster system. My sister and I got in a huge huge fight because I called her friends shitty people. They signed those papers and agreed to love him unconditional and they can't, or should I say won't do that. But as time as gone on, she is seeing what I meant about them being shitty people
last week - My parents went to DC and brought him home to live with them so he didn't have to go back into the system. Adoptive mom didn't even hug him when they left. She didn't allow let him bring his bike, Nintendo Ds, NOTHING! Just a few clothes. On the way home he asked my parents when he would be going back home. His mom didn't even have the courage to tell him that he wasn't!!! Ugh. So my parents had to tell him that he wasn't going to go back to his adoptive parents home bc he would have to go back to a different foster home if he did. They assured him it was not his fault, that his adoptive mother has issues she needs to work out (they really wanted to say your adoptive mom is a major heartless douchebag, but they kept it nice.). He cried for about a half hour after hearing he wasn't returning back home. I don't think its his parents he is really sad about but he does have a 7yo brother that is still with them (apparently the adoptive parents could love and bond with him).
Anyway he is adapting well here. So far its only been 2 days but he is VERY well behaved! Very polite. Complete sweetheart. Such a cutie. My heart breaks for him. He is calling my parents mom and dad and will say things like "so you guys are my sisters now". He has walked up and just given my parents a hug out of no where. I really hope it works out for him here.
