Reactive Attachment Disorder is...

Reactive Attachment Disorder is the result of God's plan for a child going horribly awry.

Now I know I'm rubbing some theologies the wrong way... that's ok, my blog, my opinion ;o) I know that God said HE knows the plans HE has for us. .. to prosper us, to give us hope and a future and not to harm us. I believe that God's plan for each child is to be loved, cherished, nurtured, held, looked at, seen, touched, rocked, fed, sung to, and protected.

I know that in the real world this doesn't always happen. In fact in my oldest boys' worlds it did not happen. Instead they were rejected, ignored, abandoned, starved, yelled at, left cold, passed around, exposed to danger, uncared for and forgotten. I believe that is more in line with the plans of the thief... that would be the one who comes to steal, kill and destroy.. It's just his typical MO.

So I believe in the absence of the plan of the Father Creator, the thief destroyed part of the spirits of these children.

In the same way I think that the lost world is the result of God's plan for the human race going horribly awry.

But HE is a redemptive God. He made a way for us humans to come to Him and to be made whole. He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Trusting Him is hard.

For our kids, trusting us is hard... but there is a way to healing. It is possible! God can create a way out of brokenness.

We've seen Him do it.
