I have a 5 year old boy in foster care with us...he has been with us for 3 months now and everything is going great!! We are in the process to file papers for permanent foster care.. He is starting to call my husband daddy (his real dad died) but is struggling to call me mom...I do not push this...his mom is an alchoholic and have 2 hour visits every other sunday.
I do what ever i can to make our home a happy one for him....but she will always be mom.....
Is it only me, or is it so heartbroken that the "mom" will always be mommy and I will always just be the woman raising him.....Is it only a matter of time??
