Sometimes love just isn’t enough.
All foster and adopted children have experienced loss and trauma. This can include time in an orphanage, abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or death of their biological parents. All have to grieve the fact that their biological parents relinquished them, whether by choice, force, or death. These experiences leave children with emotional, psychological, relational, and, often times, physical pain.
As a result, children who have experienced trauma often struggle receiving the love that caring adults want to give, and results in challenging behaviors.
