This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

Blessed by misfortune
"Blessed by misfortune" - heard this phrase recently and I really like it. It describes what I hope for my children. That they will use their life experiences to grow and be stronger people -instead of dysfunctional, whining, entitled brats. Now I just need to help them (and me) to work toward this.
