Overview

This is the story of a courageous woman who adopted two young boys, ages four and five, who were labeled severely emotionally disturbed. It chronicles the first nine years of parenting the boys and details how an adoptive mother learned the hard way that there are some things therapy cannot fix. The children's behavior was troubling: out of control rages, sleep problems, the destruction of toys, aimless wandering, and strange hiding behaviors. But this is a story about love, not regret. It details how a mother overcame one roadblock after another-whether it was outdated mental health and educational systems or standards of practice that failed to address the parent-child relationship. Health care professionals, treatment specialists, children's advocates, and all who are raising or working with children with challenges will find something of value to help them in this book.
