Has anyone else who fostered or adopted older children been nervous about introducing them to friends and family for the first time??
Meg's godparents (my very close friends) are coming for the weekend and they will be meeting Ellie in person for the first time. For some reason I'm suddenly nervous about it. We're also going to be taking her to meet my parents for the first time later this summer. They talk on skype at least once a week so they do *know* eachother but in person feels different somehow. I'm sure I'm just worrying over nothing but I'm just wondering how those first introductions went for others. Anyone have any advice???
I've had my moments of nervousness. I just love my kids so much and I want everyone to love them. I also get really nervous that people will make stupid comments in front of my kids (especially those who really understand).
I know this is an older post, but, I just wanted to say that I feel the same way. We have a (just turned) 7 year old pre-adoptive son, who has been living with us since July..I am really nervous that someone will say something about him in front of him, or will ask questions that make him upset..
