We arrived at the Care Center, proceeded with the normal inventory: changed shoes, washed hands, sanitized hands, trek up the steps to the first door on the left. The nannies welcomed us in and handed Terefech to us. We indicated that we were taking her out of the room.
Terry and I headed to the basement of the Care Center and dug out our supplies. We started with a book, which she seemed to enjoy looking at. She noticed the child feeding himself, and mimicked this behavior. We got out the Oh's and Stars and that was a big hit!
After some initial trepidation, Terefech played and laughed with Terry; we gave her water out of a sippy and gave her more Oh's and Stars. We had finally made progress as she smiled, laughed a bit and generally loosened up. We were relieved. Here are pictures of our breakthrough day and pictures of her now (5 weeks later).
Then: 5 weeks ago
