Attachment Challenges Suck

There is no nice way to say it.  Parenting an Attachment Challenged child sucks!!

  • It sucks the life out of you.
  • It sucks the love out of you.
  • It sucks for the siblings.
  • It sucks the energy out of you.
  • It sucks all past pain and sorrow into the present!
It sucks!!!

That is why I can't find the time to blog right now.  I am drowning under the weight of a very Attachment Challenged child.  Lexa is struggling tremendously, as is our family.

Yet, we believe we are making small steps forward.  That hope, and a faith in healing a child of trauma keeps us moving forward.

Blog posts like this and this  keep us going when it is tough, and it is really tough right now.
