WANTED: A Friend

Single, white, male, aged 6 years,
seeking another male for companionship.
Must like legos, video games,
playing outside and candy.

As sad as that ad is, it's the truth. Last night, Jake and I had this reality sink in as we talked about how much Owen misses his friends in Wichita. I try my best to entertain him and keep him busy. But I am only "mom". He needs to find someone he can relate to. Someone he can play with. Someone to be a boy with. My hope is that at his school's Open House Night next Thursday I will be able to get to know a few of his classmates parents, maybe even get a phone number or two to set up play dates outside of school. I'm also praying it will make going to school a little more easier. I'll keep you all posted.
