Quiet . . .

Things have been a bit quiet around here.  The Orlando retreat came and went.  I have a wonderful weekend with 120 women who "get it".  They do the tough job of raising kids from trauma who struggle with attachment issues.  We help one another by offering suggestions, emparting skills, talking about what works for them and what has failed.  We give one another a place to sit and vent but also to learn to help our kids heal.  It truly is an amazing time away.

Since then, I have been hard at work on the website for the organization that is taking over the yearly retreat and offering more in the way of year round support.  The original organizers are stepping down and one brave momma has stepped up in their place.  Beyond Trauma and Attachment, also known as BeTA, ( has been born and we are working hard to fill the gap.  My job is the new website, as well as maintaining the facebook page and support groups.  
Can you do me a favor and share our website with your facebook friends or real life family? You may not know that a family you are close to is struggling. So many families keep this sort of thing quiet because they feel like they are the only ones going through this or that they are dong something wrong. Early Trauma and Attachment issues are not just reserved for adoptive families either. You could be helping hold up a family who are living a life they never imagined! Support groups are now available for moms, dads and siblings.
