Overview

Upside Down: Understanding and Supporting Attachment in Adoptive Families by Shannon Guerra

Adoptive families working through attachment issues often feel alone. It doesn’t have to be this way, though.

The communities around them want to help, yet they usually don’t know how to help when it comes to attachment issues.

A little perspective can change all of that.

Upside Down shares stories from dozens of families healing through the spectrum of attachment issues, from general attachment concerns to Reactive Attachment Disorder. It demonstrates ways adoptive families can explain these often invisible special needs to the community around them, and also shows how these communities can provide support without causing more damage to a hurting child and further isolating the families working so hard to heal them.

Topics include:

- the reality behind the rose-tinted movies

- the why behind the weird limits

- the tangle of community

- what adoptive families really want...besides coffee

- sample letters for care providers

- links and further resources

The message of Upside Down is two-fold: Adoptive families are not alone, and the communities around them can be equipped to make sure they never feel that way again.

About the Author

Shannon Guerra is a lifelong Alaskan who stays warm by running around after her six children and drinking ridiculous amounts of tea and coffee. She loves to read Dickens, Austen, C. S. Lewis, and her children's handwriting. Shannon passionately believes in God's extravagant love for humanity and His desire to speak and move through His people. She and Vince have been married since 1997, and they enjoy hiking, watching movies, ministering through prayer, reading, and snapping each other with kitchen towels, to the shocked amusement of their kids.

Shannon writes in (mostly) complete sentences at copperlightwood.com.
