Is it a good thing or bad thing that my foster child cried when I dropped him off at babysitters today? I'm wondering if this is a sign of attachment? Today is his second day, but the first day he didn't cry. Hmmmm?

Maybe and maybe not. It could just be the mood he is in. Or there could be other things going on in his head that he can't communicate with you about yet. If you have not already read it a GREAT book to read is call Connected Child. There is also a parenting dvd that might interest you by the same author.....Karyn Purvis. The video is awesome at showing the different kinds of attachments and what they look like. I have worked in adoption for 15 yrs and found GREAT information in both her dvd and her book.
