Need Foster and Adoption Help? Part Three

What We are About

Intro:

Hope all is well with you! Laurie here with another post to help parents who have children with behavioral, foster or adoption issues. Most of my posts have to do with these subjects. Please take a moment to read some of my other posts.

My last two posts were about the first two parts of the ministry I have started called Abba Father’s Love (AFL). I talked about parental support groups and Life Coaching. Please check them out.

Today I am going to talk about the third part of this ministry called Abba Father’s Love (AFL). There are two other women who minister with me in the AFL ministry. Their names are Wendy and Angie. We have a great time seeing the families heal and be encouraged through what we do.

 

Abba Father’s Love Blog:

The third part to this ministry is this blog. This site is  abbafatherandhislove.wordpress.com  and you have found it. Yeah!!

I have poured my heart out in this blog! When my husband and I adopted we discovered our girls have a disorder called Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) and we were dumbfounded. It knocked us on our butts and society didn’t even begin to understand. So, I started this blog to help families who are going through the same things my husband and I went through.

Our adoption agency said if our children were in foster families then they wouldn’t have RAD. They were so wrong!! Both of our girls were in foster families and they both have RAD. RAD can come in different levels ranging from mild to severe. One of our daughters has a pretty severe level of RAD. The other has a difficult level which is more intense then medium but not severe.

I felt so alone and misunderstood by society in general because society doesn’t understand parenting RAD children is nothing like parenting “normal” biological children. Most adopted children come with some level of emotional baggage. A large percentage come with a level of RAD.

It is my heart that the parents who find yourself alone and misunderstood by society have this blog to come to and heal, find community and find help with your children who have behavioral, adoption or foster problems. We want to be the support group, life coaching or blog you run to and find encouragement.

 

Introducing Wendy:

         Since this blog is the subject of this post – I want to take this opportunity to introduce a woman to you. Her name is Wendy (mentioned above). In the near future (of this blog), Wendy will be writing some posts FOR this blog.

Wendy will add so much to this blog because she comes with a wealth of knowledge concerning adoption, fostering and special needs. She has much to say on a large amount of subjects. She will start her posts in the near future.

Wendy has a servant’s heart and many adoptive mothers have solicited her advice. She has adopted several children and has fostered over 70 children in her home. She helps me run the AFL support groups and one of the support groups meets in her home.
