I am reminded of a family I knew; daughter had no trouble, son wound up beating up his dad. Praying.

My wife and I will continue praying.

We're curious as to how Jadon came to live with you at age 2. I once was a foster parent, many years ago, and cared for a 2 1/2 year old for a few weeks who had witnessed violence from her parents before NJ's DYFS put her in foster care. Memories certainly scar a young child.

All three of my kids came to live with us as foster children. The oldest is now 30, she is A beautiful mom and wife! Jadon and Aaralyn are actually birth siblings. They came into the system because of abuse and neglect. We and the state physician documented more than 25 scars on his body at 25 months old Aaralyn was 8 months old. After almost a year in our care the birth parents relinquished their parental rights and we adopted them. We had several other foster children as well.

Jadon has always acted out, sometimes violently, as a toddler he broke my nose by head butting me. He has always had a “need” to protect himself and provide for himself, a clear orphan mentally. It is just becoming worse and more violent. The whole family has to keep anything of any value locked up or he will steal it, and many times still finds a way.

He has not tried to hit my wife yet, but has tried to punch me about 4 times but only connected once, this past February. Most times I have been able to hold him until he calms down. I love him! And am heart broken for him.

Having a family member move out with these circumstances is called tough love. :cross: And it is tough. :(

EWTN has a family counselour who talked about this problem Saturday 7 April.

Your family is on our prayers. :pray:
God Bless.
