Real
And
Dedicated
.....I started this site after adopting children with Reactive Attachment Disorder....It tore our family apart.....
This site is about fighting to preserve the WHOLE family...
All families are at war on some level.  Divorce is at an all time high.... Addictions, abuse, abandonment, poor parenting, behavior disorders, secrets waiting to surface, generational dysfunction, re-marriage.....families ending...families blending....foster care.....adoption...
Our weapons...... God, faith, wisdom, love, education, healing, forgiveness, reconciliation, counselling, health, understanding, good communication, support, encouragement.......
Success doesn't come in a tidy little happy ending like most fairy tales would have you believe.  Success is not when your peers tell you what a good job you're doing.  Success is when you keep doing the best you can.....when you get back up again when you fail.... to perservere and press on.... to forgive yourself..... to forgive others.... to not be perfect or expect perfection.... and when it's all said and done, and they are still a mess....you know somehow you made a positive difference in their lives......
