    She says that Jesus can heal everything and psychiatrists and medication are the work of the devil. All we have to do is pray and it will all be better.
    Hey, gma, if Difficult Child weren't on lithium right now, he'd be on the front page of the paper like one of those shooters.
    Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.
    I did not respond to a single comment of hers about her theology. I just thanked her for her concern.:angry-very::mad::confused:o_O:poop:
    P.S. During an adoption Christmas party 18 yrs ago, she pulled me aside and told me she was jealous that her daughter had chosen us as parents instead of her. I'm thinking that her daughter knew what she was doing.
