A New Name

Our 5-year-old has been a bit resistant to the whole new last name thing. After all, he’s had the same last name his whole life and even though there are some triggers associated with it, it is his and all he has known. We’ve been talking about his new last name – our last name – and adoption a little at a time with the kids and something clicked in E over the weekend and he suddenly started introducing himself randomly with his new name like he was testing it out. He still doesn’t totally understand or believe that he gets to stay with us permanently, but for now, he’s content with the whole new last name thing.
