Regina Kupecky replied to Emmy A.'s discussion Tell me about Older Child Adoption...
"85% of kids in the world have siblings. Most lose them in a search for permanency so asking for an only child may be cutting out many children. You can ask for one child but a child who has no sibs and will have none? very rare. They may have no…"

Regina Kupecky replied to Kristina Inman's discussion Is anyone else interested in adopting a child from Haiti?
"Adopting from foster care is pretty near free. You probably can do it for under 500 or so. There are many children waiting here as well. I don't think Haiti would have the system right now for adoption. As a matter of fact some Americans were…"

"I am new to this. For some kids parenting alone won't help they need more intervention. Glad you looked at our book. Good luck Regina "

"Medication should help withadhd. You need an attachment therapist for RAD who should be able to help with the PTSD as well. You can check www.attach.org for registered clinicians. You do need help as the child will not outgrow those diagnosis…"

The kids (new and old, haha!) are adjusting very well. Little Jaycie is sheer joy and fun (for the most part) as an adorable 3-yr-old, with daddy wrapped around her little finger! The most difficult adjustment is for (and with) Jeffery, who is now 10. He's been through SO much more... and has 95% of the benchmarks of attachment issues--- no surprise, after all he's been through. It is VERY difficult for my (previously youngest) son, Nathan, to "attach" to Jeff, with all of Jeffery's behaviors and quirks, to say it nicely. Nathan, who was initially the MOST excited for the "new kids" coming (of all of our seven children), is now very "disallusioned" with the boy that he'd hoped would be a playmate and good buddy for him-- his new roommate, which most of the time he'd like to "kick out" now!!! I'm sure you've seen it before... We don't have enough bedrooms for them to separate (my oldest son already moved into the den), so I don't know what to say to him.... Any ideas? Thanks for asking. Probably didn't know what a loaded question it would be! I'm sure I'm not the only mom facing similar dilemnas. I appreciate your help, Regina.

Hello, Regina! So good to "find" you here on AV! I met Greg Peck at the ATTACh Conference in September--- sorry I didn't have the pleasure of finally meeting YOU after talking for almost three years! I truly had a wonderful time there, and was glad to also get to know Lynn Wetterberg a little better. Hope to cross paths with you soon!
