Better days

I'm still here, just been tired and not much free time. We seem to be getting into more of a schedule now and Sunday was an amazing, calm day as a family. Little Will still has tantrums but nothing like last week. I see more and more of who he really is, and also what he can be when he's not so angry. William loves to be read to, loves to eat popcorn, cantaloupe and mandarin oranges, loves to ride in his little car and ride his bike, and finally he loves his Jie Jie(Grace). It's so sweet, he calls her "Jie Jie" on his own and insists that is her name, not "Grace." They also can get in fights like brother and sister now so I'm the referee. He can still be quite defiant when he's told no, but there has been great change and better days. This week I've been able to be more patient than I've ever dreamed I could be and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the comments, emails and phone calls. Thank you to the friends who have listened to me. And I especially want to thank this beautiful woman, Gwen who has reached out to support me, offer some advice and checked on me to see how I'm doing. She calmed my fears and gave me great hope last week when I felt very little. Trust will come in time.
