While Kyrie was being sick, and Nathan was playing violin at a funeral, the second graders were in town for bio-mom visits.
Kirk got to have lunch with his mom:
We told her that was a deal. SOLD!
It was rough seeing Mary’s mom, and what addiction can do. She showed Mary some shiny jewelry and put something sparkly in her hair. Mary responded by asking her why she steals things with a boyfriend who hurts her, instead of getting a job to buy some new teeth.
But she says she is trying, and getting help from relatives, and I hope it is true.
Kirk’s mom seems to be doing great! She is clean and sober and holding down a job, and we are so proud of her. They enjoyed ordering their lunch from her, which the kids thought was very cool, and I hope the hugs will brighten Kirk’s spirits.
We could not have done today without the help of our nanny, Shawn, and I am so grateful.
