Re: January 2013 Chat Thread
Mine doesn't even try to talk me down. He gets worked up because I am upset. He wants me to be happy so he pretty much either gets mad or shuts down if i carry on to much. Luckily I have a good friend who fosters too. Between this forum and her it is pretty much my only source to talk it all out. I have learned the hard way who I can talk too.

I know if our current baby leaves, it will kill him as much as it does me. Luckily, I have my mom to talk me down. She's been through all this crap so she really, truly gets it.
