What makes me proud

by Liam, aged 10

Willing to accept my situation
Happy to help other children like me
Adapting well to my new family
Thankful for Nina* and Charlie* and their love 

Managing at school (free reader now, yay!)
Asking for help when I’m struggling to cope
Kind to other people
Escalated academic levels
Sibling jealousy has gone 

Managing contact with my family
Every day I think of how well I’ve improved my ways 

Proud of how much I’ve matured
Remember how much I’ve improved in school
Offering help around our home
Understanding that I’m not alone
Developed into a nice young man.
