Myth about Adoption
Your child will think adoption is the greatest thing to happen to him
But most likely he ll think of his adoption much differently than you will It s your dream to get a child, but it s his nightmare He s being taken from his familiar environment to a strange place among strange people perhaps never to see his former caregivers again For a child who has already been traumatized, adoption itself can be a trauma It depends on the age and situation of the child
Sleep and wake are verbs (although we usually use "wake up" for when you stop sleeping, and "go to sleep" for the moment when you begin sleeping): My kids go to sleep at 10 PM. I slept during the 6-hour flight. I wake up at 7 AM and I have to be at work by 8. Yesterday I woke up late because my alarm didn't go off.
You can also use wake up for the action of making someone else stop sleeping: Don't talk so loudly! You'll wake up the baby! Your sister is taking a short nap. Can you wake her up in about 20 minutes? Awake and asleep are adjectives. Use them with the verb to be: He's awake. = He isn't sleeping. He's asleep. = He is sleeping.
It's common to use the expressions stay awake / stay up (to continue awake) and fall asleep (to begin sleeping): On New Year's Eve, my children stay awake until midnight. I always fall asleep in history class - it's so boring!
