Bee woke up crying at 3am. I tried to get her back to sleep, but she just couldn’t go to sleep. Finally, I laid down next to her in her bed and spooned her-my arm tucking her close and tight, my leg thrown over hers and her head tucked under my chin. I would suffocate in this position, but it is her safe space.and 90% of the time it works to get her to sleep.
This isn’t foster care approved. What has been discussed (and approved) is psychotropic medications.
