A Bird in the Airport
David has spent the last week with his grandparents and he is nervous about flying home. He is not nervous about flying — he likes flying — but he is nervous about being home again. You see, his father has moved to a different house and David isn’t sure what it will be like. As he sits in the airport, he sees something surprising. It is a bird sitting on a television monitor. He marvels at the sight, and is about to show his grandfather, when he hears a message — seemingly just for him.
(This is a good story to help prepare for a separation.)
