Merry Christmas to Adoptive Parents!

Merry Christmas!


         Hello everyone! As usual I write this blog to the foster and adoptive parents out there navigating through adoption and Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) issues. Many of my posts are on these subjects. Please check them out.

My last post was about practical Christmas shopping for the severe cases of RAD. It has some good suggestions about the type of gifts to get. Please have a look.

Today I am going to do a short and sweet post about Christmas. I hope it will encourage you in this season. It is my heart’s intent to do so.


You Are Amazing Parents!

         If I could I would pat every foster and adoptive parent on the back who is loving your RAD adoptive child as best you can. I understand you don’t get the encouragement you need or desire. So, I am stepping in here to fill some of the gap.


Christmas Encouragement and Prayers:

         I just want to take a moment to bless you and speak words of encouragement. So, this is what I am praying for you this Christmas Season:

  • I pray you are safe and your travels go smooth and quick
  • I pray your shopping is successful and you find sales
  • I pray Your RAD child will not try to create chaos
  • Your heart won’t get broken by your RAD child’s rejection
  • That your RAD child won’t be destructive to themselves, you or to material things
  • Your child will not be stuck in their fantasy thoughts about their birth families and instead participate in your Christmas festivities
  • I pray you will have peace in your home for the Holidays
  • That you will be at rest inside
  • Your RAD child to show respect to their adoptive mother’s and be kind
  • For your adopted child to find healing for their broken heart
