I am the mom of 3 biological children and 3 adopted children. After bringing home our adopted children, I quickly realized I was not equipped with the right tools. I discovered I needed to come from the opposite direction then where I had come from with my biological children. Our girls have been home over 14 years and I have learned so much.
As an RN, I have spent the last 12 years continuing my education in the study areas of RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder), brain development, FASD, trauma and working with the hurt and difficult child.
Recently, I authored a book, Adoptive Parent Intentional Parent, that I know will become a valuable resource for other adoptive families.
