How strange it is to be the carer with a child at respite rather than the carer providing respite.
Why are we having respite from our gorgeous little bundle?
Well, not because we want it, that’s for sure.
It’s so “Jade” and her brother can spend a weekend together, and they are with a family friend who will support mum when they family is reunified.
I’ll be honest, I’m struggling with this decision made for us.
I’m struggling to understand how it’s the best thing for “Jade” at this point in time.
I’m struggling with not having any contact details for the carer.
I’m struggling not knowing if tummy mummy will also be spending the weekend there, and yes, that is a very real possibility.
I’m struggling with not knowing how bubs is going to be when she comes ‘home’ to us.
Will she remember us? Will she be out of our routine? Will she be our normally settled baby or unsettled?
