My little Miss B is unhappy. It just really sunk in for her that we are moving to another city, Portland, and state, OR, where we do not know a single person. I found her in her room last night listening to a mournful High School Musical song and crying. (The lyrics above are from the song she was listening to.) As she looked at me with her tear streaked face filled with sorrow, I almost lost it myself. She confided to me of her longing to stay and not leave her friends. The poor little thing. She has guilt over leaving a friend in her grade and keeps telling me that she is abandoning him. I have tried to explain that she can keep in touch with her friends here and she will definitely make more friends in Portland (not "new" -she feels like this means replacement of friends). It is as if my words have fallen upon deaf ears. She is having such a hard time coming to terms with move and I feel like nothing I have said is helping. If anyone has any suggestions or words of support for Miss B please let us know.
I wish I could do something to bring her sunshiny smile back.
