We are a group of parents who have children who have been diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder.
This can happen to a child for a variety of reasons. Raising these children is very challenging. We think that reading about other's challenges is very helpful and encouraging. So we created this blog so we can write things we go through without infringing upon our children's privacy. For this reason we will not use our children's names or our own. We hope you find this blog helpful

Country mom intro

Hi, I am Country mom, one of the moms here. I live in the country. I have four children, some are bio and some are adopted. My youngest child age 9 has been diagnosed with RAD among other things. My son "wheels" is adorable, smart and can be very sweet. However his first 6.5 years were spent in an Eastern European orphanage and that left him with some psychological scars. He has been home three years and made tons of progress! We still deal with tantrums some and lying and occasionally a little stealing and some food issues, but he is coming along. I am starting to see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel. Parenting him has been the hardest thing I have ever done, but totally worth it. At least today I think so! LOL I look forward to sharing more with you about our journey together.
