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!

New Christmas Pics!

Aren't they gorgeous! We decided on PJs this year instead of formal wear or anything else. As always we love Photography by Jenny Rhea!

The expression on your husband's face is priceless.

Hubby asked why we didn't use one where he was smiling, (especially since we had to Photoshop as usual). The answer: his expression never changed in any of the shots - except one, where he looked constipated!

Oh well, at least he didn't look like a crazed serial killer this year. IRL he's a very calm, happy person... don't know what happens when he gets in front of a camera.

The picture is great! Sorry it's always stressful for somebody. I've done scrapbook layouts on the "real" family photos and they are hysterical.

I actually did a whole blog post of my Hubby's "serial killer/ constipated face just for Miz K last year - Remember this?

Waldenbunch - I swear I did a post of the different shots we had trying to get everyone smiling, but I couldn't find it!
