    Reminds me of the child we adopted who molested my younger kids and killed two of my dogs. People don't understand Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). They are not told about it from social workers who want to place the kids in homes.

    I'd probably like reading this book. Thanks for posting it.

    You think you'd like it? I would think you'd want to read something lighter ... although since she lived alone and adopted them deliberately, it's an entirely different journey. I'll let you know if I get a copy. It doesn't come out for another month.

    Thanks. I am interested in anything about psychology, dark or light. Even though it's ten years later, I am still interested in what made that eleven year old child tick and why he did the things he did.

    Oh, okay. I get it!
    I ask my son now why he did the things he did. I am always hoping for some insight. His most common answer: "I don't know."
    Arrgh.
