Universal words and work for mothers

Two beautiful posts, from two adoptive mothers, about the pain, the challenge, and the spiritual weaponry for dealing with Reactive Attachment Disorder:

Visit Helen and Diane.

I think the thoughts they express apply, in their way, to all of us. We are a fallen people, living in a fallen world.

Diane writes:
My greatest struggle in parenting a child who shows symptoms of RAD has not been with my child, but with myself. Anger, doubt, unkindness, impatience, despair...I have been there.

Yes, dear Diane, so have I.

And I don't have the added and extreme challenge of RAD.

How humbling. How in need of God I am.
