Post Adoption Depression

See this article.

I do believe this is far more common than anyone is talking about.  

The enemy likes secrets.  

He thrives on secrets.  

If you are struggling...tell someone you trust.  Tell your husband first...and then tell your mom, a friend or a pastor.  

The road to healthy attachment will be bumpier if you are living with depression.

Adoption Anxiety

Read this .......from Dr. Voddie Baucham.

It's a minefield of Wacky Theology out there.   Parents Beware.

You MUST listen to this/ Mental Health Issues!!!!!!!!

...ADD... ADHD...  Bipolar...  Anxiety...  PTSD...  Depression...etc.  etc.  etc......and I would include RAD.

Dr. Voddie Baucham

With 6 adopted kids????...the Bauchams must be dealing with attachment issues.  I would be pleasantly surprised if they weren't.

"A psychiatric disorder is NOT a medical disease."   

"You do not have a medical diagnosis."

"Whatever you are facing is not bigger than a dead Jesus.  And if the power that raised Christ from the dead is available to dare you be hopeless."

Listen till the end.

I am so thankful that our pediatrician had this same mindset all those years ago.  And, that the 2 very honest specialists she referred us to...concurred.
