husband's brother and his wife adopted a little girl from China this past spring. I'll call her M. This is their second adoption from China. The first one went very smoothly and their older daughter is going to be 9 this coming January. Their second daughter's upbringing before they got her was a little all over the place. From what I understand, she was with her birth parents until she was about 6 months old. Then she somehow wound up in a Chinese orphanage and she was there for about 18 months. Then they felt that she was not hitting all of her milestones at the right times so she was sent to live in a foster home. Then J and A adopted her and brought her home to America. She is youngest of 4 (they also have 2 biological sons, the oldest of whom is 4 months older than my easy child and is a difficult child in his own right). A was telling me today and whenever they go out she is friendly and everyone thinks that she is just a wonderful little punkin. She'll talk to anyone. But when they are home she does things like smear poop all over the crib and her walls. She'll pee on the floor when she is pretty much potty trained, except at night. She is into everything. They are a homeschooling family, so there are times when A is busy with the two older ones and does not have her full attention on M. I told her that some of these things sound very attachment disorder-ish to me, but that I wasn't all that familiar with it. I know that some of you hear deal with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). Does this sound like the beginnings of it? I was very concerned before they adopted her when she told her about how she was shuffled from one care giver to another.
