I was beyond excited when I recently found a multi-colored five…Continue

I was freezing cold and soaking wet.
The parking lot had been full that morning, so my son and I had hoofed it from blocks away to the elementary school. I'd given up my side of the umbrella, so the icy rivulets running down my back were an unpleasant reminder that fall had arrived quite early this year.
But when I turned the corner of the hallway, I almost forgot my discomfort. The scene in front of me broke my heart.
There was a dad, on his knees, with his first-grade daughter…

Two more days until the girls go back to school. Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun.
It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder. At times, it has been a nightmare.
