We have had custody of my husband's youngst child, (17 years old) for 4 years. I welcomed oppurtunity to nurture this child when my husband asked me if he could come live with us. I had no children of my own, I welcomed being a stepmom who could provide love, and guidance for Killian for very imortant years of his life.
Boy was I wrong!
When Killian came to live with us he had nod for 3 years. He had been diagnosed with Tourettes, ADHD, Bi-Polar, among some of the diagnosis. He had been going to psychologist and psychiatrist since he was 8 years old. He medication included a total of up 8 medications at one time. My first goal was to try to get Killian off all medications so that we could see who this 13 year old boy is....he took meds to sleep, to wake up, to focus, ETC. ...for 8 years!! I was determined create an atmosphere at home that was going to loving and nurturing. His Mom doesn't drink, or do drugs, and she is mostly a good influence she has not taken the "time" to give guidance t o the parents.Answer Question
