I have been hanging out over at the special need boards, but have a question for over here too. Our sweet Alex passed away at 6 months, 4 1/2 years ago. At that time ds1 was a month shy of 3. He continued being happy and not super affected, however I feel like more of his emotions are coming out now. After Alex passed we adopted a boy from Korea, who was then diagnosed with special needs so lots of life revolves him and his therapy needs etc. I think it is all hitting ds1 now. Loosing a brother, adopting a brother, having a brother with SN.
He is weepy at night and talking about missing his brother all the time. We allow him to talk it out etc, but I fel like my heart is breaking all over again. Any others experienced this with older siblings?
