Love Never Quits: Surviving and Thriving After Infertility, Adoption and Reactive Attachment Disorder (Paperback)
WHACK... At three in the morning Gina was sound asleep, yet somehow she was smacked in the head. She looked over at her husband, thinking perhaps he accidentally rolled over and flopped his arm on top of her, but he was sleeping soundly and facing the opposite direction. She turned to the other side and glaring back at her was her eight-year-old child. "Did you just hit me?" "Yes, and I'd do it again." "Whyyyy?" "Because you took away my video games." "That was EIGHT HOURS AGO. And you're still mad about it?" "I wish I could kill you." This is the true story of the hell one family lived through parenting a child with reactive attachment disorder, a severe diagnosis related to children who experienced early-childhood trauma. This inspirational story covers over a decade of daily struggles until they finally found resolution and made it to the other side. The family remained intact, and this once challenging son is now achieving things never thought possible.
