Yes, the last two months have been hard! It was the summer of 2011. During this time, I thought I was doing great! Well, compared to what I had to walk through during the six years with the three adoptive children in my home.
My counselor Elizabeth said, "The first day I walked through her door - "That I was almost dead!" I thought, "What is she talking about?!" But during that same time, my friend Angela told me what her husband had said to her about me; "Rebecca is going to die!" Angela said, "James, don't say that!" He said, "Yes! We are going to lose Rebecca; she looks like she is dying!" I don't know what they both saw about me at that same time, but I must have been a sight.
I am going to share my story with you, and I am going to attempt to, not-hold-back. I am going to express to you, what I went through; how I felt, my fears, my tears, as well as my being traumatized day in and day out!
I want you to be able to understand my efforts, my desires and my passion of wanting to help my three children to become productive adults in society! I am going to let you ‘dissect the frog,' so to speak.
My counselor and my friend both said at the same time, that I looked bad enough to die! Well let me tell you something, I died a long time ago! There is nothing anyone can do to me, or being arrested, attempts to eliminate me or to defame me; nothing could have a hold on my life like the journey I just traveled with this emotional illness called "Reactive Attachment Disorder" (RAD). We didn't even know what it was until five years into caring for the three children. Being caught off guard, we couldn't see because we were so close to the problem. ~ Rebecca.
