A New Year

A New Year is almost here. A time for new beginnings and to say goodbye to the events of the last year. A time of letting go. There seems to be something refreshing about the thought. So maybe this is the year of new beginnings for my son. All I can do is hope, pray and continue to work with him with the guidance of the 2 professionals we are working with. We started something new today. We went to attachment therapy and then straight to EMDR therapy instead of having them on separate days. We will do this again next Thursday and then try it twice a week for a month and see what happens. I feel we are at a crossroads in his treatment and I pray this is the answer. If you want to pray this is the specifics. He needs to learn to talk about his feelings instead of just venting them as anger and rage. He needs to learn to use some positive behaviors. He needs to do something that shows a desire to be a part of this family. Anything.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I will pray, my friend! I like hearing that you are at a crossroads - sounds like progress to me. Hope these new strategies prove to be helpful! I, too, remain optimistic in the new year ~ maybe, just maybe, it will be our year to see breakthroughs in our children. Blessings to you in the new year!
