Cried a river today when some silly little office glitch caused the office worker to comment that things don't appear to be going my way this morning. My tears took her and me both by surprise. Poor gal! Things haven't been going my way for the 2 years since daughter-difficult child's Reactive Attachment Disorder behaviors have come back in force. I'm grateful that I really do well most days. I'm grateful that this is a place where friendly people experiencing similar heartaches will listen... and share their hope and encouragement. My trigger today? We passed the milestone of a big anniversary of "adoption day" ...and the difficult child "kids" have grown into monsters I don't even recognize. daughter-Bio continues to do outstandingly well... even though her heart aches because of difficult child choices. I HATE to make the Bio-adopted comparison... because it doesn't accurately reflect that all 3 were raised by loving parents in our loving home... the "adopted"'s only deficit that makes a TREMENDOUS difference is they were exposed neonatally to mind altering substances, and bounced around in foster system for years before they were placed with us.
