For Me and My Son

Apr 16th 2014 new
I have a son with Reactive Attachment Disorder (he was adopted three years ago at nearly 7 yrs old), and things just are spiraling out of control again. He has always brought a lot of chaos and tension into the house, but it seems worse. He is doing terrible in school grade-wise, but it doesn't seem to be a second language issue because he does exceptionally well in a few areas that are language related. He just doesn't seem to care. He is always simmering just below a boil and none of us know what will trigger him to boil over. My other three children are becoming increasingly stressed out not only by him but by sensing my stress. I need wisdom. We have had some difficulty finding a good mental health professional locally but have some good therapists from a treatment center we went to in Colorado.

Thank you all for your prayers. I never thought I was going to have to parent this child on my own.

    Jack,
    Thank you. I will be praying St. Dymphna's prayer. Also, I chose my Confirmation name, Margaret, for St. Margaret of Cortona. I'd forgotten her patronage.
