We are having a REALLY hard time. The police have been here, Patches has been taken to the ER, and I have been beaten, bit, scratched, and pinched much harder than usual. Please pray I survive the latest possible dx. I worry we will be searching for a residential placement for Patches very soon, the AT may insist.

I feel for you. Although our daughter wasn't a danger to others she was to herself so she's been gone since September 8 doing hospital stints and is now in residential. It's so hard. It makes me feel so helpless.

Prayers definitely being sent your way.

Tudu -- Lifting you up and all your kids, esp. Patches and Kiera. It must be a scary time for both of them right now -- and you. I'm remembering in prayer all the various adoptive families I kow IRL as well as online, whose kids really struggle at this holiday season. Also your hubby -- that His grace will shower down on you and your partnership. -- Rachel

I am so sorry for all you are going through. We have been through so many of the same episodes with our adopted daughters. I will be praying for you.

Wow. Praying for all of you tonight. I'm terribly sorry for all of you. Please don't feel bad if you need to seek residential treatment or if you have reached the end of what you can do for her at this time, at your home. Sometimes the best Mom knows when to say when. I would in know way consider this to be you giving up on her...I'd consider this you taking her care and healing to the next level. You are a great mom, doing what very few people could.

Bless your heart. I hope she can get the help she needs.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I promise to update as soon as I can without interruption. Patches is at home but still not being herself.
