We had a short psych evaluation today. She found nothing conclusive. Then we went to attachment therapy. Bear sat in the hall and I spent the whole time with the attachment therapist. There is a lot to sort out as we try to figure out this road for Bear. We stopped attachment therapy after over a year last May. Bear was not ready. I was working very hard. He was not and was shutting down more and more. So how do we prepare this young man to live in the world? That is the question we tackled today. We have full support from our attachment therapist in whatever we do. This is why I am so driven to become an attachment therapist myself. I'd be so honored to provide this kind of support to a mom. There are not enough attachment therapists out there and their loads are full. I will be working on things over the coming week, making calls, conferring with the AT and arriving at a plan....hopefully. I'll let you all know what we decide. Thanks for those who prayed or cheered me on. Torina, we have ahd your same issue with therapists that are not attachment therapists so I'm going into this with extreme caution and concern. Lisa I do not know what I want to ahve happen other than for Bear to be well.
