Hope for the future

It sure has been a while. I've been neglecting this blog as I usually write tidbits of my normal life on facebook. But today, I've spent time reflecting. Many of you know that my five year old, Gabe has reactive/attachment disorder. It's tough to deal with. Some days, I feel like I'm drowning.

The constant destuction of things, lying and contention wear me down. It's a cycle that is very hard to get out of. I finally called our medicade guy who is in charge of Gabe, begging for help. He gave me the name of a therapist who uses alternative therapies and Medicaid will actually pay for it! It's a miracle! You see, when you adopt a child from the foster care system, they get Medicaid insurance until they're 18. It sure helps. Anyway, our first appoint was last Monday to set up an assessment and the first official appointment is this coming Wednesday.

We've tried traditional therapy and it just doesn't work. Sorry, you traditional therapists out there. Some things need to be healed in a different way.

If you want to know more about this new therapy, you can check out this website-- Hope it works. I'm at my wits end. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks to all for your continued support.
