Trying to figure out a way to explain rejection to a four year old has been interesting. Never ever imagined this would be normal conversation in our household. There is no book for these situations and it calls for some creativity. I came up with this: rejection is when your new heart and body get into a big fight. When the doctor takes little tiny pieces of your heart he looks at them really closely to make sure there is no sign of fighting, which is a zero. Not too bad right? The Princess seemed to understand.
I’ll just let Addison tell you the results in her own way…
Woohoo!!! Doing the happy zero dance around the McYong household. It’s always a huge relief when we’ve jumped through yet another hurdle.
Thank you for all your support and words of encouragement. We couldn’t do it without you.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
