Are you ready to learn more about Reactive Attachment Disorder?

In just a few days, when my brain and computer work together, I’m going to be launching the first part of my on-line course called:

“Opening the Eyes of Professionals to The Realities of Reactive Attention Disorder in Children”

A Course for Physicians, Social Workers, Teachers, Police, Judges, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists

This course is really designed for adoptive families to introduce what RAD is to disbelieving family members and friends, as well as the professionals.

Here are some chapter titles that might interest you:

Session 1: What Is Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) and Why Is It


#1-A What is Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD)?

#1-B Why is it important for professionals to listen to a RAD child’s  parents?

#1-C Describe different RAD behaviors.

Session 2: What Factors Lead to Reactive Attachment Disorder in Children?

#2-A What events can lead to RAD behaviors in children?

#2-B Identifying triggers to behaviors.

#2-C Listen to parents’ concerns.

There are six sessions to this course, but we want to share the first part of it with our readers right now. The first four parts are really designed for everyone affected by RAD. As an freebie, we will be offering “Molly’s Story” for free when joining our email list. The introductory course, which will include Session 1-A-C and Session 2-A will cost $49. Once it’s downloaded, it can be shared with anyone who needs to see it for free.

When the course is totally completed, the regular cost will be $500. Those who have paid for the introductory course will be able to purchase the rest of the course for $200 (this equals half-price off the whole course.)

My Adoption Life – Heart and Hands

I’m working with the R.A.D. Teen Adoption Program of Wasatch International Adoptions. Off and on, I will be posting some of the children in need of new homes. If you or someone you know is interested in more information about these children, you can inquire at:

Meet Lacey. our newest RAD Teen client. She’s a young girl we call “Lacey” because we need to keep her name private. She is 12-years-old. We are looking for a home study ready (or one that can be quickly updated) single mom or two-parent family with no other children in the home or other girls over the age of 15.

The family believes it would be good for Lacey to have a church to go to. She was baptized Catholic, but they have no preference as to denomination or if any. The family believes Lacey would do well with either a stay-at-home parent or working parents. They have no preference as to the age of the new parents. If you fit what we are looking for, please write to us at and request her full information.

Lacey was adopted from Bulgaria when she was 7. She blames her mother for things her biological mother did. She would like a different parent. Lacey is in need of a new adoptive home. The family tells us that she is intelligent, but doesn’t do well in school. Her mom got her an IEP to help with her education services.

Lacey loves sports. She plays soccer, basketball, volleyball, and swimming. She loves playing on teams She likes music, art, drawing and movies of all types. Loves dancing and singing with her friends. She enjoys watching cooking shows. She has a love of nature. She likes animals of all kinds, especially dogs.

This is a private adoption, so a state or foster care home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. You will need a current, updated or new home study for this adoption. Due to state laws, we are unable to place this child in CT, MA, NY, FL, DE or WI. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption. I

f you haven’t started your home study, please contact us for information on how to begin one. However, if we have home study ready families for this child, we will consider them first. Therefore, if you are willing to take a child between the ages of 9 and 15, we suggest you begin the process as soon as possible.

We know that adopting a child over the age of 9 is going to be difficult, but we feel confident that there are parents of all types, single men and women, traditional couples and same-sex couples out there who love kids and would love to add them to their families.

Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated with them. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit. Contact us if you have any questions. Our email is (This picture is not of the child, if you would like to view her pictures, please email us.)
