Introduction I'm the admin for a large, international support group on Facebook called Parenting Attachment Challenged Children. I have a Masters degree in Social Work, a bachelors in Psychology with a focus on child abuse and neglect, and over 30 years of experience working with children and families, in particular those with special needs Hubby and I adopted special needs teenage siblings in 2008 - a son, (Bear, age 25) and daughter, (Kitty, age 23). Both are diagnosed with RAD, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, C-PTSD, brain injuries... and many other diagnoses. We also have two younger bio children, a daughter, (Bob - see the post "What about Bob" if you're dying to know how she got her nickname -age 22) and a son, (Ponito, 20). I love to help, and I hope my blog provides resources and support for parents struggling with children with attachment and trauma challenges.
