Update on new placement.

OK, I have to admit, the new placements are HARD. I am not used to having teenagers, especially teenagers who have been through what they have. and... it is difficult for me.
But.... as hard as it is... there is something about these two... not like the boys, I feel like they are supposed to be with us.

It is hard because one of them has extremely poor social skills and is developmentally delayed, and possilbly adhd.  The other with issues all his own, will either live in his own little number world, or, because of the literal thinking, tends to argue incessantly with Nanna Banana.
The other day they nearly got into a fist fight over gum. Not who had it, who it belonged to or even what flavor it was. What they were arguing over was a piece of Trident gum.
Nanna said it was a "piece of gum". He said it wasn't just a piece, it was a whole. a whole gum. OK... so technically they are both right. but trying to convince 2 very strong willed children that they are both right in their own way was EXTREMELY difficult. This goes on all day long, between the two of them.
As for the teenage girl, one bored 12 year old with a pair of scissors, a ball point pen and a stapler can turn your house totaly upside down.

These two are a LOT of work and I think that we are going to be forced into a decision very very soon.
