Younger Boy is keeping a memory log.

When he is triggered to remember something from the past he is to write it down.

The purpose is two-fold.  First, we are trying to see how often he is "in the past" and also to make sure we are able to work through all of the memories.

Tonight he wrote down at least three.  The first time he asked how to spell the first names of his biological mom and grandma.

He asked if I wanted to read them.  Only if he wants me to.  I can read them as he goes or we can go over them in therapy.  They are his memories, so it is up to him.

Younger Boy is now taking an ACTIVE ROLE in his own therapy.  I honestly feel like we have turned a corner.
