Today I think it clicked with Middle Boy that his is a big deal.  I think it was a combination of things.  Therapist A told him that is it serious.  That it isn't a game.  Since she is usually straight with him he started to get it.

He also told her he didn't want to talk about the whole case any more, because he would have to talk to the accuser.  Therapist A explained that is not the case at all.  Now he is ready to talk about it.

I knew he didn't really get it.

This has also really changed the dynamics of our phone calls both in what we talk about and the frequency of the calls.  He is opening up to me like he hasn't before.  We have been close since the day he moved in, but this is a whole new level.

The other thing that clicked was that he realized with the late December arraignment date he is going to miss my birthday.  He cried about it last night.  It broke my heart.  I told him that I am going to have many more birthdays he can help me celebrate if this one doesn't work out.  Besides...I am a little old to be going all out on the birthday thing anyway.

Praises for understanding and better communication.

Prayers for continued truth to be revealed....on both sides.
