Shortly after having a baby, I made an appointment. No, it wasn't for the pediatrician or the obstetrician. I scheduled an appointment with a therapist. My hormones were raging; my feelings were exploding and my life was changing. I knew in order to take care of my daughter, I had to take care of myself. I couldn't harbor hate against my daughter's dad, who broke up with me…Continue

For the entire month of August, I just didn't let myself think about it beyond the facts.
For the last two weeks, I just focused on anything else that took my mind off of it.

I have been working hard to get myself organized. So far, I’ve gotten the kitchen(mostly done), the living room done, and our lil’ homeschool/therapy room. Actually the boys spend most of their day in here. We do all their therapy in this room, ALL their Legos, and of course our schooling.
Homeschooling can be very expense & so is Autism, diabetes, pacemaker, & hypothyroidism. Mix it all up, and we are constantly broke. We are constantly thinking out the box, and looking to…Continue

My daughter has Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). She has it because she spent the first nine months of her life in a Russian orphanage.yes""> It wasn’t caused by anything she did, she just didn’t get the love, attachment and bonding that she needed as an infant. And then I adopted her. Unfortunately, as a grieving widow, I
really didn’t have the emotional surplus to give to her, to help her bond and
rebuild her broken brain.…
