These moments are rare. When Emily was born, I “lost” Oliver. A new family member is a traumatic event for a young child and children express jealousy in many ways. Oliver has always been kind and generous to Emily, but has moved away from me. He became daddy’s boy. It hurt but I’m happy that he found in Alex what he needed. I think that's when I really realised that I can’t take anything for granted in the relationship with my children and since then I have evolved a little every day to be the mother they need. It took almost 3 years, but Oliver is coming back to me.⁣
