You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

How we understand our life stories, how we share our stories with others and how we deal with life's challenges is important for all of us. Adoption adds a layer of complexity. Issues of attachment, identity, behavioral regulation, self-esteem and the impact of a difficult/unknown early history can take on added significance as children grow and mature into young adults. At The Cradle Center for Lifelong Support, I work with all members of the adoption circle. My expertise is in strengthening children and families by improving attachment, communication and understanding, with the goal of helping children/teens succeed.
