I am suburb mom. I have four children, all biological. They range in age from 6-13. My second oldest struggles with attachment disorder. He was medically fragile as a baby and spent a lot of time away from us. He is a smart kid and sure is a fighter. I am very proud of the things he has overcome. Unfortunately it all left him with severe trust issues and RAD. I will call him Titan (his favorite football team). We have struggled with doing no therapy, therapy alone, and therapy with medications. We have found that therapy with medications works the best for us. Without medications we really struggle with a lot of violent behavior. Thankfully the meds seem to slow that reaction time down a bit and make him more available for interventions to counteract the RAD. I have learned so much from my precious son and I know there is so much more to learn. Through my son I have also found a great deal of personal healing as well. This is a tough road but it is strengthening my faith every day. I hold onto the fact that I know God will not give me more than I can handle.
