ooh my goodness--I am in tears reading your blog right now--I believe in my heart God led me here--It sounds like you are writing about my sweet sweet boy.

From the depths of my heart thank you for having the courage to write about your attachment struggles--THANK YOU!

We have adopted twice and our first one was honestly magical. My girl and I bonded from the first moment we met. Our second adoption was so differant. Our sweet baby boy was neglected and very malnourished and sick when we met him. He was not taken care of at all. I honestly don't think he knew what a kiss, cuddle, or hug was. This utterly broke my heart. I love him with every fiber in me but he did not know how to give love back. I knew it wasn't about me, but as a momma it was HARD. We have come so far now --he won't even let me leave the room:) And to be honest I secretly love this! :) I know in his heart he knows I am momma but it took a while--but so worth the wait and struggle for his heart. I would do it all again many times over to have what I have with him now, but when I was in it --it was so hard.

I want to encourage you and pray for you and Anna Grace --you will look back at this time and be amazed you went through all of this --I assure the struggle for her heart will end and when it does your bond will be overflowing!!!! Thank you for writing thank you~!!!!!!!!!!!
