So after that visit, we went to see our boy, and he immediately got fussy when he was handed off to us. Understandably, we didn't have high hopes for this visit, either, but we got a little surprise. One of the careworkers heard him fussing, and brought out his favorite toy, which is full of buttons with noises, whistles and lights. He started pushing buttons, which he apparently found comforting, and while he pushed noisy buttons nonstop, Daddy put the ipod near him so he could hear it. That didn't impress him, but when I started showing him pictures on the camera, he got interested, and looked at all the pictures intently, (while pushing his noisy buttons.) After that, he went exploring around the room, and let me hover over him. When one of the careworkers came out and started talking to him and trying to engage him, he got mad, threw a fit, and never would get up and start exploring again. We figured that was a good time to say goodbye.

We feel like we're getting familiar with her, and how her mind works. We've noticed that she's very resistant to switch activities, but since she's very compliant, we didn't know why. We've realized that she thinks our time is over, and we're taking her back. She was okay walking away from the building, but she didn't want to walk toward it, so we just walked very slowly, so she'd realize the visit wasn't over yet.
