Hello! I was really glad to find this site! Just reading that others were going through what I am was a relief. There are no support groups around here.. I have 6 children: 22 - bio. child, married, great kid 21 - bio. child, living with grandparents to help take care of them, great kid that loves stunt riding his motorcycle, sky jumping and any thing else that will give me gray hair. 20 - bio. child, living with boyfriend, great kid now, has already given me alot of gray hair. 9 - adopted, with us since 5 weeks old. Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified, ADHD, Fetal alcohol syndrome, mood disorder, MR, escape artist. 4- adopted, with us since 3 mo.. Disruptive Behavior Disorder, ADHD, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome 2- adopted, with us since 3 mo.. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome We have fostered for 11 years now. We never intended to adopt, but it just happened. Our 3 adopted children are a huge handful! We love them just like our bio. kids, but they really take it out of us. I know why they say to have kids while you are young. My problem is our 9 year old. This past summer he was hospitalized twice for agression (physically abusive to me and smaller kids and tore our home up). The doctors have not been able to get his medications. right since. He swings (moods) more than a swing set. He believes he is in controle and can do anything he wants to. We live on 20 acres on a dead end road (we are at the end of the road surrounded by woods and creeks) with 6 homes before ours then a major highway. He keeps sneeking off! He can disappear in no time and he takes our 4 year old with him. He tells me nothing will happen to him! He goes up the road to play at the neighbors when they are not home during the day or down the creek that leads to a lake and subdivision. He has been taken out of school because he cant handle being seperated from me and they cant get his medications right. I schoolo him during the day but it only takes a couple of hours and he cant find anything to keep him busy the rest of the day. He doesnt play with anything! His only interest is his 4 wheeler and critters in the woods and creeks. Short of taking him into the bathroom with me we are together all the time. Does anyone have anything good to say about tracking devices? Are there any that he could not take off? We have alarms and locks on all doors, but he takes off when we are outside or in public too. I'm going crazy!
