How we are handling it

I have had a busy day. I have left on my road trip with Fish.We are having a great time. I emailed all of Bear's teachers and let them know what is going on. I also cautioned them about being alone in a room with Bear as in the past when he has started accusing us he has accused them as well. In the past the accusation never left our house. Now they have expanded. I also called our attorney and the chief of police and let them know what might happen.

I left Bear a note on his bed with some Hershey Kisses saying that I love him and that I will be back. That I made sure he has plenty of food when I am gone as this is always a concern for him. I told him we will talk about it all when I get back and not to worry. That is all I can do at this point other than to continue to pray. This has made me so aware of how deep his fear is and how much the RAD is controlling him at this point in his life. Have I lost hope? Of course not, I will never do that.

Brenda, I'm glad your trip is going well, and I hope you and Fish are able to spend some quality time together that you will both cherish next year when is at school.

As for Bear, I feel your pain - my nine year old is in search of a foster family. If it wasn't so sad it would be funny. I'm so sorry you are going through this, but I so admire you for your strength and courage.
