I am once again giving blogging a try. We are in the midst of attachment therapy at our house. On the website http://www.attachmentdisorder.net/ there is the story of a bridge. Your child with RAD is on one end of the bridge and you are on the other. Mom's tend to run across the bridge to meet our child at the first sign of their interest in coming across. Generally this ends up in scaring them and they blow up the bridge. We are hurt and wonder what happened and start again. They recommended that mom stay on the far side of the bridge and wait til the child comes all the way across. Our son R is a good ways across the bridge and we hope he'll be here soon. Our other son, A has just figured out that the bridge is there and is looking it over. Patience is a virtue!!!!!!!!
