We pick up where we left off with a sibling group of three. 5 year old Ladarion is doing well in school, is very affectionate, and is learning how to spell paleontologist because he wants to work with dinosaurs when he grows up. He hopes to get help with big words from his forever family on this week's Wednesday's Child.
It was hard for Ladarion to focus on one thing at the Mississippi Children's Museum. There was just too much to see and do.
"Tell me what you like to do. Do my music. You love music don't you? Do you like to dance? Ladarion nods yes."
His social workers say he has good behavior, loves to carry on conversations, and have fun. He is very involved and participates in all his classes at school.
"Yeah I like school. You like school? Tell me what you like to do in school. Play with my dinosaurs. Play with the dinosaurs", said Ladarion.
When he gets excited it is more difficult for him to communicate, and once Ladarion makes up his mind about something it is difficult to convince him to change course.
"What do you want to be when you grow up? Kindergarten. You're in kindergarten. Very good. Do you want to study dinosaurs when you grow up? Nods yes. Did you see the dinosaurs where you could dig for them? Yes mam. Did you see the cow? Yes mam. Did you milk the cow? Yes mam. Yes you did. And tell me about that water. Did you like that water? Yes mam. What did you do in that water? Did you catch a fish? I catch a fish", Ladarion said.
Whether its dancing, learning about the human skeleton, or just fishing, Ladarion hopes some day these are all things he can share with his own mom and dad.
