My child who had RAD couldn't bare to throw his old bed spread in the trash. He went out to the trash can and was gone for quite awhile. He finally came back and says "I couldn't do it."
Taz has never cared about possessions. When he was little his toys would be broken within the day of getting them. He breaks many of our things. He has had his possessions repeatedly taken from him with his many moves by age 3 and felt he and nothing he owned was of value.
It is very touching to me to see this softeness in him. It is a sign of healing as it is so different then he has been in the past.
