Adoption and Christmas

We adopted my youngest son, Jonathan, this past April so this is his first Christmas.  As with many adopted kids, big holidays bring out big emotions.  Last week, Jonathan's school had a Christmas shop.  The kids brought in money and bought presents for their family.  When I explained to Jonathan that he had to use the money to buy presents for other people (and not himself) he got very upset.  So I took the opportunity to talk about an adoption issue that a lot of us face as the holidays approach.

I don't have any quick fixes, but I do have a few things that we do on a daily basis that slowly help our kids.
