Revisit Shayla's earlier attachment issues
Earlier when I had talked about Shayla's attachment issues in China, below is the example of how difficult it was for Mark. Shayla would not let him put her down. In the beginning, when he tried to even sit down, she would literally climb up his body, screaming at the top of her lungs the whole time. When he tried to lay down, she would not lay down next to him, she had to be physically laying on his body. Sorry the pics are blurry, I hit something wrong on the camera apparently.
Now this (below) is how she likes to go to sleep (yay me finally). She sucks her thumb and wants one of her soft fleece blankets...then wants to be held like this as she goes to sleep.
