My husband and I adopted our granfson who is now 6. We have had him since 10 weeks of age. We adore him, and have provided a loving home. He has been oppositional for 3 years. He was exposed to chronic drug use while in the womb, and abanoned until 10 weeks of age. He has no memory of his bio-parents, and has never asked about them. He has told me he hated me regularily for years, and now adds he wishes I was dead. It is breaking my heart. He is very hyperactive, and the littlest thing sets him off. We have had him in counseling in the past, and he is due to begin again in August. I have read countless books on bonding, but am exhausted and discouraged living this way. He also hits, pinches, and kicks. Any words of encouragement would be appreciated....I am loosing hope.
