In about 30 minutes we’ll be pulling up at Cayden’s school for MEET THE TEACHER NIGHT. I am oh so excited and nervous about meeting the woman or man that will be an influencer in my child’s life for the next 9 months. I’m wondering if it is too early to bring them a gift? Is it too early to bombard them with questions? Is it too early to tell them I’ve been praying for them specifically for months now?
As a mom to children through birth and through adoption we want to be a helper to our kids teachers in talking about adoption. It won’t be long until Cayden comes home telling us that one of his friends says that one of his brothers or sister isn’t his REAL brother or sister b/c they don’t look like him. That makes my heart hurt just thinking about it.
I had a grand idea a long time ago that I could give my kids teachers a gift on the first day of school each year. I thought about something cute for themselves, but then also a few books for their classroom. Specifically books about adoption. I could pick out some of my kids favorite books and give them to the teacher as a way to tell them that we’re in this together and I want to help out with adoption talk whenever I can.
Is this dumb? Would I be intruding on his/her “teacher space”? Teachers out there let me know your thoughts!
