I recently e-mailed Beetle's foster mom just to find out how he's doing. I got a report that he was off methadone, through withdrawal, and much happier. They were comforting words to read, but nothing compared to walking in the door at our agency recently and seeing his little chubby face! Dinosaur and Rhinoceros were with me, and Dinosaur recognized him right away, though he has changed a ton. I'm glad they got to see him, too. I can't say what it was because he wasn't smiling or laughing at the time, but something about his expression and liveliness was so reassuring. His big eyes were telling me, "I'm doing better. The tough stuff in my life isn't over, but I really did make it through that part."
